Allahabad High Court orders removal of mosque, mazar in Chandrashekhar Azad Park

A Division Bench of Acting Chief Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari and Justice Piyush Agarwal held that all illegal encroachments in the park that came up after 1975 should be demolished and a compliance report should be submitted by the authorities by October 8.

"We want the park free of all encroachments", the Court said.

"In fact, we find no assistance from any corner either for producing the document or otherwise rather as and when the question was asked ... prayer was made to grant time to produce the document," the Court had noted at the time.

The petition was moved by one Jitender Singh, who alleged that some members of the Muslim community were creating artificial graves to convert the parkland into a graveyard and that they are trying to convert a building within the area of the Chandrashekhar Azad Park into a mosque.
