Lucknow: The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad
High Court today directed the CBI to file its status report
regarding search of seven missing documents related to
Ramjanmbhoomi-Babri mosque land dispute on January 19.

The court also directed the agency to reveal the names
of persons who have not been cooperating with searching out
the files.

A full bench of justices S U Khan, Sudhir Agarwal and D
V Sharma hearing the Ayodhya title suits passed the order on
an application filed by CBI, seeking more time to find out
missing documents as per earlier orders of the court.

Earlier on July 15, 2009, the bench had directed the
CBI to complete it`s enquiry within two months.

The court had directed the state government to produce
the documents, which could not be done.

The seven documents included correspondence between UP
government and Faizabad district Magistrate in 1949, a message
of the then prime minister Jawahar Lal Nehru to the state
government for removal of idols from the Babri mosque.
