The Proof of Valid Wills I

The execution of a Will is proved not only when the statutory requirements for proving that Will are satisfied but the Will is also found to be ordinarily free from suspicious circumstances [Pragnaben, (2008) 15 SCC 365]. Whether a Will is surrounded by suspicious circumstances or not is essentially a question of fact.

3 Courts below had concurrent findings on the issue of the genuineness… SC shall not interfere with concurrent findings of 3 Courts unless there are special circumstances warranting interference.
