On 19th November 1948 Calcutta High Court had declared Berhampur Bank bankrupt and issued an order to close it; but the depositors had challenged this order of the Court with a petition demanding return of their money with the bank.
Can anybody say that the ‘Justice has been done’ for the case resolved after 72 years ?
