Mumbai, Nov 27 (UNI) The Bombay High Court was today informed that the police has decided not to grant permission to any association, other than the official trust, to erect ''pandal'' for a religious ceremony during the ''Urus'' of Hazarat Bava Bahauddin Durgah near Bombay Hospital here.
A division bench comprising justices R M S Khandeparkar and Amajad Sayyad had, yesterday, taken the police to task for granting permissions for religious ceremonies, leading to traffic congestions and causing inconvenience to the general public.
While hearing a petition filed by one Anjuman Faizan-e-Bahauddin Asfahani Committee for a separate ''pandal'' in the vicinity of the ''Durgah'', the court had directed the traffic police to make alternate traffic arrangement during the ''Urus'' to be celebrated on December 2 and 3.
Today, when the matter came up for hearing, public prosecutor Satish Borulkar informed the court that the Azad Maidan police station has decided not to allow any association, other than the official trust of the ''Durgah'', to perform ''Niyaj'' during the ''Urus''. The road leading to the Bombay Hospital will, therefore, remain accesible during the ''Urus'' period. The court recorded the statement and disposed of the petition.
