Lucknow: Media, both print and
electronic, would be kept away from the High Court compound
here on the day of pronouncement of the verdict on the Ayodhya
title suits on September 24 and photocopies of the judgement
would be made available at the district collectorate.

On the directions of the Lucknow Bench of the
Allahabad High Court, the district administration, Lucknow, is
making arrangements for briefing the media on the verdict on
the Ayodhya title suits of the special full bench on September
24 in the collectorate compound, District Magistrate, Anil
Kumar Sagar said.

The arrangements for briefing the media at the
collectorate compound are being made on the directions of the
court, he said.

This step has been taken in order to avoid unnecessary
crowding in the court compound on the day.

There is also a proposal to only allow the presence
of the counsels and the parties concerned in the court room
where the three-judge bench would pronounce the judgement.

Sources in the court said that the Chief Justice of
the Allahabad High Court, F I Rebello has issued necessary
directives to the Lucknow administration in this regard.
