A Delhi court has dismissed an application for review of its September 20 order regarding the Qutub Minar controversy, saying there is no merit in it and the petitioner has failed to show sufficient grounds for review.
The court, in its judgment on Saturday, also said that the appeal in the form of a review application cannot be allowed. The court was hearing an application filed by Kunwar Mahendra Dhawaj Pratap Singh, who claimed that he is the heir apparent of the erstwhile ruler of the ‘United Provinces of Agra’ and owns land in Delhi and several nearby cities, including the Qutub Minar.
Singh had argued that he was a necessary party to the appeal, which sought to restore and restore statues of Hindu and Jain deities, claiming to be a temple inside the Qutub Minar complex. Singh had filed a review petition against the court’s order, which was rejected by the court on the ground that there was no material in the petition.
Additional District Judge Dinesh Kumar said that the petitioner could not show any proper ground for review of the order dated September 20, 2022, due to which his application is rejected.
