Interfering with another’s goods in such a way as to deny the latter’s title to the goods amounts to conversion and it is a civil wrong. Facts:
Ram went to a bicycle stand to park his bicycle and he found the stand fully occupied. Ram removed a few bicycles in order to rearrange the stand and make some space for his bicycle. He parked his bicycle properly and put back all the bicycles except the one belonging to Shyam. It was rather negligent on the part of Rain and he was in fact in a hurry to get into his office. Somebody came on the way and took away Shyam’s cycle. The watchman of the stand did not take cafe of it assuming that the cycle was not parked inside the stand. Shyam filed a suit against Ran for conversion.
a) Shyam would succeed because Ram’s act led to the stealing of his bicycle.
b) Shyam would not succeed, because Ram did not take away the bicycle himself.
c) Ram would not be held responsible for the negligence of the watchman.
d) None of the above.
