Plea against attempt to remove signs of Lord Krishna temple in Mathura

The suit was filed by Pawan Kumar Shastri, the priest of the Keshav Dev temple on February 2.

Mathura, A court here on Tuesday admitted a plea alleging an attempt to remove signs of a temple from a mosque claimed to have been built at the birthplace of Lord Krishna within the premises of the Katra Keshav Dev temple here.

The plea was filed by a temple priest, apprehending removal of signs of the temple by office-bearers of the Shahi Idgah mosque, District Government Counsel Sanjai Gaur said.

The court has entertained the application as part of a suit, demanding the annulment of a 1967 court ruling ratifying a land deal between the Shri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sansthan and Shahi Idgah Management Committee, allowing the existence of the mosque near the temple.
