Lucknow: The Allahabad High Court on Thursday
extended the status quo at the disputed site at Ayodhaya till
The Lucknow bench also directed its office to finalise
the decree of the judgement pronounced on September 30 last
year while disposing off the objections filed by various
parties in the case.
According to HS Jain, counsel of Hindu Mahasabha -
one of the parties in the case, special full bench comprising
justices SU Khan, Sudhir Agarwal and Virendra Kumar Dixit
clarified that since the three judge bench in September had
pronounced separate judgements, the majority opinion shall be
taken into account while finalising the decree.
The court also permitted commissioner Faizabad, who
is also the receiver of the disputed site at Ayodhaya, to
change the tarpaulin, polythene sheets and ropes of the
makeshift structure. The commissioner had earlier moved an
application in this regard, Jain said.
On an application moved on the behalf of one of the
parties, the court allowed to prepare a list of the books -
both religious and historical - cited during the hearing of
the case for safekeeping as evidence.
The next sitting of the bench would take place on May
20, he added.
The status quo at the disputed site, extended in phases
since the pronouncement of the verdict on the title suits, was
to end on May 31.
