Fearing demolition the temple management moved the court against the government notices. It told the court that this is one of the oldest temples of Sai Baba which came into existent even before the freedom movement. The petitioner claimed that there is nothing on record stating that the land is owned by the government.
Justice Rajesh H Shukla dismissed the temple management’s petition on Friday and upheld the notices served by the government. The court found that the temple is constructed on government land which should be demolished.
