CHENNAI: A foster child of former chief minister MG Ramachandran has approached Madras HC alleging that some other legal heirs of the late CM were constructing an indoor stadium at Ramavaram Thottam in violation of the terms of a will left behind by MGR.
Geetha M Mohan claimed that as per the will, the property could not be altered. A division bench of Justice K Kalyanasundaram and Justice V Sivagnanam directed the Chennai Corporation to respond to the plea by November 30.
According to the petitioner, as per the will dated January 18,1987, she and four others had joint ownership of the property, including a deaf and dumb home and higher secondary school for speech and hearing impaired children.
The beneficiaries have made an oral partition among them and are residing in their respective portions. All other infrastructure in the property like garden, temple and swimming pool are common for all.
While so, Sudha Vijayakumar, one of the beneficiaries, has started putting up permanent structures in the common area to house an indoor stadium and a volleyball court. This action also prohibits the beneficiaries from sale, rent, lease or alienate the property, she added. She submitted that despite several complaints made to the authorities concerned they have failed to act.
