Mathura court reserves order on plea seeking removal of mosquePTI | Mathura | Updated: 07-01-2021 21:46 IST | Created: 07-01-2021 21:46 IST
A District and Sessions Court here on Thursday reserved its judgment on the maintainability of the petition seeking the removal of a mosque near a temple which the devouts believe marks the birthplace of Lord Krishna.
A group of people had filed a suit over the 17th century Shahi Idgah mosque, which they claimed was built at the birthplace of Lord Krishna, within the 13.37-acre premises of the Katra Keshav Dev temple.
Next friend is a legal term for a person who represents someone directly unable to maintain a suit.
The appellants had demanded the annulment of an earlier Mathura court ruling, ratifying a land deal reached between the Shri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sansthan and the Shahi Idgah Management Committee. Earlier, a lower court had dismissed the plea after which the plaintiffs moved the district court.
