Bringing or defending of suits by a minor is governed by Order XXXII of Civil Procedure Code. Every suit by a minor must be instituted in his name by a person called “next friend” of the minor, and a suit instituted directly by the minor may be struck off the file.Where the defendant is a minor, the court on being satisfied of the fact of his minority must appoint a proper person to be guardian ad litem for the suit for such minor. No person can be appointed guardian for a minor who has an interest adverse to that of the minor. Guardians ad litem must also be appointed for minors in petitions for letters of administration, and in any other matter in which the minor is directly or indirectly involved.
