The Supreme Court on Monday admitted a petition by the Akhil Bhartiya Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Punaruddhar Samiti challenging the Allahabad High Court verdict in the Babri Masjid case, trifurcating the disputed site.
An apex court bench of Justice Aftab Alam and Justice R.M. Lodha, while admitting the petition, tagged it with the main case.
The Sunni Waqf Board, which opposed the plea, said the Samiti, headed by Shankaracharya of Jyotishpeeth and Dwarka Swami Sri Swaroopanand Saraswatiji Maharaj, was not a party before the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court concerning the main disputed site. The high court had pronounced its Ayodhya verdict on September 30, 2010.
Appearing for the Waqf Board, counsel Anoop Chaudhary told the court that Samiti was before the high court in another matter, which was dismissed and now cannot file an appeal in respect of the matter in which it was not a party before the high court.
At this, the court said that it was a single judgment wherein all the issues were addressed. It said that objections raised by the Waqf Board will be kept open and considered when it takes up the matter for hearing.
