SC refuses to entertain shop owners' plea in Haji Ali case
The Supreme Court today refused to entertain a plea of shop owners of Mumbai's Haji Ali Dargah for modification of its order directing the removal of encroachments in 500 square metre area of the 700-year old historic shrine.
The apex court had directed the Dargah Trust to remove the encroachments by May 30 or face removal by a joint task force. A vacation bench of Justices L Nageswara Rao and Navin Sinha said the apex court had already considered the matter in detail and passed the order. "We cannot entertain the petition as the other bench of this court has already considered the matter in detail and passed the orders," the bench said.
