“Pitchaimani was not in a position to comprehend what was the time, in which place he was there and who the person, namely, Sub-Registrar was. The very fact that he could not even sign and only his left thumb impression is taken on every page of the document, that too in a manner as if it is not made by the same person, but, with the help of another in awkward and reverse directions, categorically demonstrates that he was disoriented,” Justice Bharatha Chakravarthy held.
