Allahabad: The state government will now decide the case involving construction of Baba Jai Gurudev samadhi in Mathura.

Division bench comprising Chief Justice DB Bhosale and justice Yashwant Varma, in response to the petition filed by Shailendra Singh Chauhan, a follower of Baba Jai Gurudev, directed state government that if petitioner files a revision challenging compounding of sanctioned map of samadhi then it may decide the same within some stipulated time period.

In the petition it was alleged that Baba Jai Gurudev trust is constring samadhi of Baba Jai Guru Dev in violation of map sanctioned by the authorities.

The state government has been authorised by the HC to consider all the objections raised against petitioner including his locus to challenge the order regarding sanctioning of map for Samadhi.

Senior Advocate VK Singh and advocate Shivam Yadav appearing for Baba Jai Gurudev trust opposed the petition on the ground that samadhi is as per sanctioned map and petitioner has no locus to file a petition challenging sanctioning of map. They had argued that construction of samadhi would not affect the petitioner as he is completely alien to the issue and is filing a frivolous petition with ulterior motives.

“Samadhi is as per sanctioned map and there is no irregularity in its constructions”, added counsels representing Trust and submitted to the court that Trust will not raise any construction for four weeks. They requested the court that state government should be given authority to decide all the objections raised by them against the petitioner, including petitioner's locus to challenge the construction of Samadhi.

The Bench also directed petitioner that in case he moves any application before state government seeking any interim relief or stay order against construction of Samadhi than he must give a notice to Baba Jai Gurudev Trust before filing any such application.
