Lucknow: The Allahabad High Court on Friday (May 26) transferred all the cases related to the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Idgah dispute in Mathura, Uttar Pradesh to itself. Like the Ramjanmabhoomi case, now this case will also be tried in the High Court only. The High Court has given this order on the petition of Lord Shri Krishna. Along with this, the court has asked the Mathura District Court to send the records of all the cases to it.
According to reports, Justice Arvind Kumar Mishra passed the order while allowing the transfer application filed by Ranjana Agnihotri, a friend of Lord Shri Krishna Virajman of Katra Keshav Dev Khevat Mathura, and 7 others. The court directed that, 'The District Judge of Mathura should prepare a list of all such cases and transfer it to this court within two weeks along with the records of these cases. This transfer will be considered transferred under the right of suo cognizance of this court.
The High Court further said, 'The Honorable Chief Justice is requested to nominate an appropriate bench for hearing and disposal of such cases.' The petitioners urged that like the Ayodhya case, the original suit needs to be heard by the High Court itself. After hearing the concerned parties, the court had reserved its verdict on May 3, 2023, which was pronounced on Friday.
The High Court further said, 'Looking at the facts shows that 10 cases have been reported pending before the civil court and more such cases may be pending, which have not progressed at all for the last two-three years. Let us tell you that while presenting the arguments during the last hearing, the counsel for the Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board told the civil judge's court that the matter was not worth hearing, as an agreement had been reached in 1968 itself.
