Mumbai: A little over a year after the death of Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray, his sons Uddhav and Jaidev are locked in a legal row over property worth crores left behind by the party patriarch.

Uddhav, who was anointed party's Executive President by his father, has moved the Bombay High Court to probate the will of his father, who died on November 17, 2012.

The probate petition of Uddhav, filed in January 2013 by solicitor firm Kanga and Company, has been converted into a testamentary suit as it was opposed by his brother Jaidev, who has not got any share in the property, said a lawyer involved in the case.

The matter is expected to come up for hearing on January 27 before Justice Roshan Dalvi. The court might ask the parties to accept or deny documents.

A probate petition is filed to get the will of a deceased person certified by a court.
