In one of my cases i helped the bank manager in presenting a letter to the court that the locker exists in the bank and it shall be opened in the presence of legal heirs and representative of the court.. On that letter the court ordered accordingly.. Usually a local commission is appointed for that person.. Banker cannot open locker without the presence of court representative..
