Allahabad HC to hear Amitabh's plea on Oct 9
The Allahabad High Court, on Friday, fixed October 9 for final hearing of the writ petition filed by megastar Amitabh Bachchan challenging order of the Faizabad Commissioner cancelling the allotment of a farmland in his favour in Uttar Pradesh's Barabanki district.
Justice AN Srivastava of the Lucknow Bench posted the matter for further hearing on October 9 after Bachchan's counsel filed the rejoinder affidavit.
The court rejected an application moved by one Ram Chander seeking to implead himself in the matter on the ground that he owned the land in question.
Bachchan has filed a petition in the court challenging the commissioner's order cancelling the allotment of the farmland to him in Daulatpur village in Barabanki district during the previous Samajwadi Party regime.
