The Allahabad High Court has directed a local court in Mathura to decide two applications pending before it, filed in connection with the Sri Krishna Janambhumi Dispute, within 4 months.
The Bench of Justice Salil Kumar Rai issued this order on a plea made by Bhagwan Shri Krishna Virajman And Another by observing thus:
"The Civil Judge (Senior Division), Mathura is directed to decide the aforesaid applications expeditiously preferably within a period of four months from the date a certified copy of this order is produced before him and after giving an opportunity of hearing to the affected parties, in case there is no legal impediment in deciding the aforesaid applications."
It may be noted that one Manish Yadav, the next friend of the petitioner Bhagwan Shri Krishna Virajman, has filed two separate applications in the district court of Mathura [under Order 39, Rules 1 and 2 and under Order 4-A, Rule 1 of the Code of Civil Procedure].
The High Court has ordered to dispose of both these applications within four months.
Essentially, in the first application [filed under Order 39, Rules 1 and 2 CPC], an order of temporary injunction has been prayed for to ban the entry of opposite parties (U.P. Sunni Central Waqf Board and others) at the disputed place.
Whereas, in the second application [filed under Order 4-A, Rule 1 CPC], a prayer for clubbing and hearing of all the cases filed in connection with the Sri Krishna Janambhumi Dispute in the district court of Mathura has been made.
