Headnote and holding:

The court held that as the first appellate court,
it is required to re appraise the evidence and
draw inferences on the facts and the law. That
the respondents are entitled to avoid
enforcement of a contract on the terms written
in the lease document because it was never
translated to them. That the ground regarding
pleading was of form rather than substance.
That the appellant was brought to notice of the
plaintiffs’ claims in the plaint and fully
responded to them. That the plaintiff couldn’t
recover damages from her own illegality.
