A Hindu widow can’t be divested of the property of her deceased husband on her second marriage.
The High Court of Karnataka made this observation while dismissing a petition filed by AN Amrith Kumar. Amruth and his widowed – step-mother AN Vanitha were parties to a suit in a civil court for partition and separate possession of Setty’s properties.
HC says, A widow becomes the full owner of the share in her husband’s property that may devolve on her by succession under the present section. Her remarriage, which would evidently be after the share is vested in her on her husband’s death’ would not divest her of such a share.
