AFFIDAVIT: UNDER

ORDER XXXVII, RULE 5 OF

THE CODE OF CIVIL

PROCEDURE, 1908

BEFORE THE HON’BLE CIVIL COURT
Interlocutory Application No of 20
In
Original Suit No of 20

Petitioner:
Vs.
Counter Petitioner:

AFFIDAVIT of , S/o , aged ,
residing at ………………………….

The deponent abovenamed hereby solemnly affirms and declares as under:—

1. The deponent is the Managing Partner and authorised signatory of
the petitioner in the application and the plaintiff in the suit
referred to above. The deponent is fully conversant with the facts and
circumstances of the case and stands competent to swear to this affidavit on
behalf of the petitioner. The deponent will be referred to as the petitioner
hereinafter.
2. The suit is filed for recovery of an amount of Rs with future
interest from the counter-petitioner who owes the money to the petitioner. The amount is due under a promissory-note executed by the counter-petitioner in favour of the petitioner, which note is produced alongwith the plaint as document No. 1.
Inspite of repeated requests made by the petitioner, the counter-petitioner did not care to effect payment or settle the account, which necessitated the filing of the suit.
Before filing the suit, the petitioner had sent a legal notice to the counter-petitioner through its lawyers M/s A reply containing false and frivolous contentions was sent by the counter-petitioner, without remitting the amount. At the same time, he started taking steps for disposing of the stock in trade kept in his business premises at the address given above with a view to siphoning off the sale proceeds into his private and concealed coffers for screening it from creditors like the petitioner. His attempt is to remove those goods, dispose of the same and then start a business in the name of his son thereby effectively defeating a creditor like the petitioner. The petitioner has come to know of the said threatened plans of the counter-petitioner two days ago when he made discrete enquiries through his agent, from dependable sources.
5. For the various reasons mentioned in the plaint, the suit is likely to be
decreed in favour of the petitioner in terms of the plaint. If pending
disposal of the same, the counter-petitioner is allowed to do the
threatened act, it will cause irreparable loss, injury and hardship to the
petitioner, incapable of being remedied by way of damages. Moreover, the
counter-petitioner does not have any other property or assets, movable or
immovable, in his ownership or possession. The petitioner will be left high
and dry, if the threatened acts are allowed to go unchecked. Therefore,
the counter-petitioner has to be restrained from doing so. 6. It is, therefore, just and necessary that this Hon’ble Court within a time to be stipulated by this Hon’ble Court, issue notice as to why he should not
be asked to furnish security for an amount of Rs necessary
for satisfying the decree that is likely to be passed against him in the present suit, or the scheduled properties to be attached and removed to the premises of this Court and, in the meantime, to order interim attachment and removal to this Hon’ble Court’s custody of the movable items belonging to the counter-petitioner and detailed in the schedule attached as prayed for in the accompanying application.
