Mathura Court has issued an order to transfer one of the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi-Shahi Idgah mosque cases from a fast-track court to a civil judge in the district.
District Judge Ashish Garg has instructed the civil judge (senior division) to handle the proceedings of the lawsuit in accordance with the law and in the presence of both parties involved, according to District Government Counsel Sanjai Gaur.
The application to transfer the case to the civil judge was made a month ago by Neeraj Sharma, the lawyer representing the Shahi Idgah mosque’s management committee.
This move was prompted by the fact that several related petitions were being heard in the civil judge’s court, and the management committee’s lawyers expressed concerns about the possibility of contradictory orders being issued if similar suits were heard in different courts.
On the other hand, Shailesh Dubey, the lawyer for the petitioners, argued that the defence counsel was intentionally causing delays in the case proceedings.
