Legal Principle : A contract of bailment is where one person leaves his goods in the control of other person for a specific period upon the expiry of which they will be returned.

Factual Situation: Amar had a safety deposit locker with a bank where Prem was the manager. All lockers required two keys to be opened, of which one was with the customer and the other was with the manager, Prem. One day when Amar came to operate his locker, Prem fraudently severed the lock pertaining to Amar's key thereby ensuring that the locker required only one key to be opened. That night he made off with all of Amar's valuables.


(a) The goods were left in the control of the bank and thus they are responsible for the loss.
(b) The bank is not reponsible for any such act.
(c) The fact that the customer had one key without which the locker could not be operated meant that the goods were not in the control of the bank and thus the bank is not liable.
(d) Since Prem severed the customer's lock and since he was employed with the bank which thus came into full control of the locker, the bank is liable.

The answer is (d).
