Allahabad High Court refuses to intervene in PIL seeking stay on demolition of small temples in Vindhyachal temple corridor

-

Allahabad Sept 14(ILNS): The Allahabad High Court on Monday, refused to intervene on a PIL seeking a stay on the demolition of small temples falling under the under-construction corridor of Maa Vindhyavasini Devi Temple Vindhyachal, Mirzapur.

The Division Bench comprising of Acting Chief Justice MN Bhandari and Justice AK Ojha passed this order while hearing a PIL filed by Arun Pathak.

The Petition has been filed to seek direction from the respondents not to damage certain temples within the campus of Maa Vindhyawasini Devi Temple, Vindhyachal, District Mirzapur.

The Court found that earlier a writ petition bearing was dismissed by the judgment dated March 30, 2007, holding the temple in the premises of Maa Vindhyawasini Devi Temple to be a private temple and thereby public interest litigation would not be maintainable.

In view of the above, we do not find a reason to entertain the public interest litigation in regard to the affairs of the private temple, the Court observed.

The Public Interest Litigation in regard to the affairs of the private temple is accordingly dismissed finding it not to be maintainable, the Court ordered./ILNS/AP/SNG
