what are rights in property of second wife and their daughter .
whether they have any rights in properties of his HUF .
pl guide .
It is a well settled position in law that daughters have the same rights as sons in HUF property. Therefore, the daughter out of the second marriage will have the same rights as children from the first marriage with respect to the properties of the HUF.
In the case of HARILAL AMBALAL (HUF) v ITO  9 ITD 380 (Ahd)(Trib) ) where the karta and his first wife died intestate, certain properties were divided amongst the 2nd wife and her son.
