Missing Ayodhya case files found

CBI sleuths have managed to locate a register of the state home department containing a list of the files which are considered to be useless and should be destroyed, home department sources here said on Wednesday.

“The register also mentions six files pertaining to the Ayodhya case. These files may have been dumped after the officials thought that they were of no use,” sources said.

The sleuths would now try to retrieve those files from the record room, the sources revealed.

As many as 23 files relating to the Ayodhya case have gone missing and remained untraceable.

The Allahabad High Court, which is hearing the case, had directed the Uttar Pradesh government to submit the documents but the latter had expressed its inability to do so.

The files reportedly contain correspondence between the then Faizabad district magistrate and the Uttar Pradesh government dating back to 1949 when the idol of the Ram Lala was placed inside the disputed structure.
