Chandigarh, Apr 18 (UNI) The case pertaining to the plea to preserve the site where the flag of Maharaja Ranjit Singh was once fixed on a hill top on the bank of river Sutlej in Ropar district, again figured in the Punjab and Haryana High Court today.

However, the hearing on the same had to be adjourned to April 27 by the division bench of the acting Chief Justice Harjit Singh Bedi and Justice Ranjit Singh Randhawa as the counsel for the state of Punjab sought time to file the reply.

The petition in this regard was filed by Punjab Heritage Society through its chairman Principal G S Shergill, seeking directions to preserve the historic site, which now stood in the danger of being destroyed by Japanese-owned Swaraj Mazda company.

The petitioner has pleaded that it was the duty of the state to preserve such important historical sites.
