PILs for deferring Babri verdict filed

Three PILs were filed before Justice Dharam Veer Sharma, one of the three judges of the special bench which concluded hearing in the matter and has said that it will pronounce its judgment on September 24.

The PILs contended that the order of the court might not be accepted by the party if the judgment went against it.

“Besides it (verdict) may also lead to communal violence and riots in the country at a time when the country is going to host the Commonwealth Games,” the PILs contended further.
The PILs may come up for hearing after two other judges of the bench, who were currently in Allahabad, returned to Lucknow, the lawyers said here on Monday.

Significantly, the court had also kept alive the chances of an out-of-court settlement of the vexed issue and held closed door discussions with the lawyers of the concerned parties in this regard soon after reserving its verdict in July.

Judges’ security beefed up
Security of the three judges of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court has been enhanced. According to officials here on Monday, security was beefed up after one of the three judges wrote a letter to the UP government seeking special security cover owing to security reasons and also extension of the allotment of his official residence after his retirement on October 1 next. State home department sources said though only Justice Dharam Veer Sharma had written the letter, the government has decided to beef up the security cover of all the three judges.
