it is necessary to go through suit filed in HC , partition decree , settlement arrived at between parties to advice . if any telephonic threats are received record the conversation and lodge police complaints
Nobody can possibly answer beforehand whether or not she can prove her possession. You must have filed a case for the eviction of tenant in the lower court which has now been carried to the High Court by the losing party. Unless and until she expressly vacated a portion of the house by a written instrument it cannot be said that she has vacated it. The partition decree cannot be enforced against her. It is for her to prove her possession. Wait for the order of the HC.
but she left the premises of the other side and more than a year has passed..
can she now prove her tenancy on the rest of portion that is kitchen etc on our side ,,,
she vacated the room which comes under the other side where a new building has built...

she has to prove that she is in possession of the premises . the tenant has not sent any letter handing over premises to the landlord . . if as on date a new building has been constructed wherein she earlier resided you can draw attention of court to said fact
Irrespective of how many years have passed since she left the premises on her own accord she can set up a claim of tenancy in the High Court unless there is a written instrument whereby and whereunder she relinquished her rights as a tenant. This is essentially a question of fact which can be proved by only producing the relevant documents in the court.
