allahabad high court

After Yogi govt put up hoardings of perpetrators who indulged in arson and vandalism during the anti-CAA riots, Allahabad HC took suo moto cognizance and slammed the administration, calling it ‘unwarranted interference in privacy’. It also asked the state govt to take down ‘name and shame’ posters.

This is a sub judice case and the matter is going on in court, Singhvi said. Singhvi later cited an example and said that please take the case of child rapists and murderers cases.

The hoardings included pictures of Shia cleric Maulana Saif Abbas, former IPS officer SR Darapuri and Congress leader Sadaf Jafar, all of whom were named as accused in the violence that swept the state capital on December 19 last year.

Taking suo moto cognizance of the matter, the High Court t had decided to hear the case on Sunday in spite of it being a holiday.

The Prime Minister is expected to emphasise on national unity and communal harmony in his address after the top court ruled in favour of building a temple at Ayodhya.

SC cleared the way for the construction of Ram Temple at the disputed site at Ayodhya and directed the Centre to allot 5-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a mosque.

There is a possibility that the Supreme Court's verdict, likely next month, will reflect the points in the mediation report. The Ayodhya judgement is expected to be delivered before Chief Justice Gogoi retires on November 17

The five-judge bench Constitution bench headed by Gogoi was hearing appeals challenging the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict, which ordered equal division of the 2.77-acre of disputed land in Ayodhya among the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and the Ram Lalla.

The apex court was hearing the case from August 6 this year, on a day-to-day basis (five days a week) after the mediation process, conducted by a three member Mediation panel, headed by Justice (Retired) FMI Kalifullah, in the case failed.

The hearing in the Supreme Court in Ayodhya case witnessed dramatic scenes today as Senior Counsel Rajeev Dhavan tore pages of certain documents handed over to him by one of the Hindu parties.
