( ACT NO. I OF 1872 )

Chapter VI

OF THE EXCLUSION OF ORAL BY DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE

Evidence as to document unmeaning in reference to existing facts
95. When language used in a document is plain in itself, but is unmeaning in reference to existing facts, evidence may be given to show that it was used in a peculiar sense.
 
 
Illustrations
 
 
 
 
A sells to B, by deed "my house in 2[Dhaka]".
 
 
A had no house in 3[Dhaka], but it appears that he had a house at 4[Narayanganj], of which B had been in possession since the execution of the deed.
 
 
These facts may be proved to show that the deed related to the house at 5[Narayanganj].
