The High Court of Delhi on Friday directed Ardee Builders to file an affidavit within a week, affirming that they have not created any third party rights over the shops at Ardee Mall, Gurgaon.
Justice Yogesh Khanna further directed the builders to file in a sealed envelope, complete statement of accounts of security deposits received from prospective buyers/ tenants, within two weeks.
The Court was hearing a Contempt Petition filed by Ms. Shefali Varma, alleging violation of an order passed in May, 2014, wherein the Court had granted an ex parte ad interim injunction against selling, alienating or creating any third party interest in the unsold plots in Ardee City, Gurgaon, Haryana. The order was passed in a family dispute between the mother and two daughters over division of property left by late Mr. Ashok Verma.
Ms. Verma had now contended that the shops in the Mall are proposed to be sold or leased by the Defendants, aiming to create third party rights. She had placed before the Court advertisements and communication documents with various property dealers.
The Defendants, on the other hand, had submitted that they were merely negotiating with the prospective buyers/ tenants, in view of such permission granted by the Court in July, 2014. The matter has now been listed for 21 July.
