The Lucknow Bench of Allahabad High court on Thursday provided four week's time to UP Chief Minister Mayawati for filing a counter affidavit on PILs related to alleged multicrore Taj corridor scam.

The division bench comprising Justice Pradip Kant and Justice Sabeehul Hasnain also provided the same time to Cabinet minister Naseemudin Siddiqui for filing counter affidavit and fixed January 13 as the next date of hearing.

These three PILs have challenged the Special CBI court's order dropping the proceedings against the two on June 5, 2007 following the refusal of the then Governor to grant prosecution sanction against Mayawati and Siddiqui.

It might be mentioned that Mayawati who had moved the Supreme Court for relief in this case had failed to find favours in the apex court which had directed her to approach the High Court instead.
