Lucknow, Dec 6 (UNI) The hearing into the Bollywood mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan agricultural land case concluded today before Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court, which reserved its judgement in this regard.

A bench comprising Justice A N Verma reserved its judgement after lawyers Mohd Arif Khan, R P Singh and Gaurav Bhatia representing Mr Bachchan and Chief Standing Counsel Devendra Upadhyay representing Uttar Pradesh government completed their arguments.

Advocate R N Gupta represented Gram Sabha.

Big B had challenged the Faizabad Division Additional Commissioner (Administration) Vidhya Sagar Prasad's order quashing the allotment of agricultural land at Daulatpur village in Barabanki district to him.

Mr Upadhayay had said that Mr Bachchan had failed to prove his ownership of the land and hence it could not be handed over to him.

Besides, the 1983 order of the revenue department, on whose basis Mr Bachchan tried to prove his ownership, was itself without any base.

In earlier hearing, Mr Upadhayay maintained that the Bollywood actor had not submitted any document to prove his ownerhsip on the 'Gramsabha' land of Daulatpur village in Barabanki district.

In his earlier affidavit, Mr Bachchan had offerred to forgo his ownership on the land, if all criminal, civil and revenue charges were dropped against him.
