It is further submitted that plaintiff/petitioner voluntarily, wilfully and without undue pressure and economic duress and having understood the consequence signed all the papers and documents.
11. That the statements made in paragraph 2(g) & 2 (h) of the petition are irrelevant as far these defendants/opposite party Nos. 1 & 2 are concerned. However, these defendants/opposite party Nos. 1 & 2 feels pertinent to submit as to the statement of non-co-operation of these defendants in leting out the building, in as much as, the Special Power of Attorney dated 13.05.2002 has not entrusted any power to these defendants in letting out the building. As such, the question of co-operation does not arise at all.

13. That the statements made in paragraph 2(k) of the petition are misconceived and not maintainable as such denied by these defendants/opposite party Nos. 1 & 2. In particular, that the statement as to the value of the property is misconceived, in that, pursuant to necessary provision of the aforesaid Ain, after the sale, any excess amount shall be re-imbursed to the plaintiff. Further, the statement relating to the sale of the property in question to the choice of defendants/opposite party Nos. 1 & 2 is concocted. For the sake of argument, this defendants/opposite party Nos. 1 & 2 submits that, the above Ain does not forbid the sale of mortgaged property to the person nominated by the Bank.
14. That the statements made in paragraph 2(l) & 2(m) of the petition are misconceived and baseless, in that, in the present transaction, the provision of Bank Companies Act 1991 is not applicable.

In this regard it is submitted that the demand was made legally by the defendant/opposite party No.2 vide Memo No. Prime/GL/2004/1008 dated 23.02.2004 and was in accordance with the provision of Artha Rin Adalat Ain, 2003 and as such no question of illegality arise at all. It is also submitted that since there in no illegality the learned court can not interfere to stop the demand and to stop make payment against the demand made under the Memo in question. It is also submitted that the defendant/opposite party No. 2 acted fairly and no illegal pressure was created upon the plaintiff/petitioner so the plaintiff/petitioner will not suffer huge business loss or irreparable loss and as such the court can not interfere to restrain this defendant/opposite parties by a temporary order of injunction from making so called illegal demand.
18. That the statements made in paragraph 4 of the petition are false, fabricated, baseless, malafide and highly motivated as such denied by the defendant/opposite parties No. 1 & 2. In this regard it is submitted that the plaintiff/petitioner has no prima-facie case as from the forgoing it is apparent that these defendants/opposite party acted in furtherance of Artha Rin Adalat Ain.
