Prayagraj, December 19 (TNA) In a big legal blow to the Muslim side from the Allahabad High Court in the case of ownership dispute between Gyanvapi and Kashi Vishwanath Temple of Varanasi, their petitions challenging the earlier decisions were rejected by the court on Tuesday.
The Allahabad High Court gave its verdict on 5 petitions filed by the Muslim side. The order was issued by the Justice Rohit Ranjan Aggarwal's single bench on the petition challenging the 1991 case of the Hindu side.
Anjuman Intejamia Committee and UP Sunni Central Waqf Board had challenged the maintainability of the original suit filed in the Varanasi court in 1991 in the Allahabad High Court. A Civil suit is filed in Varanasi court.
On December 8, Allahabad High Court had reserved the decision after the completion of the hearing. 2 petitions were against the maintainability of civil suit and 3 petitions against ASI survey order. The survey order of the court's premises was challenged in three petitions. The court has said that since the ASI survey has been done, the challenge cannot be made and this is also rejected.
