Dhanbad (Bihar), Dec 6 (ANI): In a unique type of litigation, a court in Bihar has summoned two Hindu Gods to appear before it in connection with a land encroachment case.
The hearing of the case in a fast track court in the states Dhanbad District was getting repeatedly postponed for the last three years as Lord Hanuman and Lord Ram had failed to appear before the judge despite issuance of a summons in their names.
The gods have been summoned, as the defence has claimed that they are the owners of the land in question, as it was donated to them by Dhanbads former ruler of the region.
The lawyers contend that if the Gods are a party in the case, they should appear before the court.
“It is the property of the Gods. The land has been donated to the Gods. Therefore, it is necessary to make the Gods a party in it. The relief in this case has been asked in the name of the Gods, said Bijan Rawani, an advocate.
The defence is saying that the land was donated to the Gods. Therefore, the Gods should be named the owners. The suit will not be complete until the Gods are made a party,” Rawani added.
The summons issued to the two Gods was sent to a temple housing their idols. The temple is built on encroached land.
A notice has also been issued in newspapers, telling the Gods to appear before the court. (ANI)
