When was the case registered?
Around the year 1970, a person named Mukim Khan filed a case in the civil court regarding this. Mukim Khan said that this place is a graveyard of Muslims and the Hindu side’s lawyer Ranveer Singh Tomar said that the land has belonged to Hindus since the Mahabharata period.
