Review pleas moved in Ayodhya case

November 26, 2010 01:32 am | Updated November 17, 2021 05:30 am IST - Lucknow:

Two applications were moved on Thursday before the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court seeking a review of its September 30 judgment on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suits. The applications were filed by Ismail Farooqui, a local lawyer. He has sought review of the judgment on the suits of the Nirmohi Akhara and Rajendra Singh related to the title suit of the disputed site. However, no date has been fixed for the hearing.

The applicant, who is not a party to the case, contended that “no cause of action” arose in 1950 for Mr. Singh's suit to be filed. Mr. Farooqui said that the Nirmohi Akhara's suit was decided way back in 1885, hence this (Mr. Singh's) suit should not have been filed.

Meanwhile, Justice V.K. Dixit has been nominated as the third member of the Special Full Bench related to the case as Justice D.V. Sharma retired after the pronouncement of the judgment.
