New Delhi-A Delhi court on Tuesday reserved its order on an application for intervention by a man claiming to be the heir to an Agra royal family and seeking the property of Qutub Minar.

Saket Court Additional District Judge Dinesh Kumar will issue the order on September 17.

The intervening plea, offered by Barrister M. L. Sharma, by Kunwar Mahendra Dhwaj Prasad Singh, who claims to be the heir to the united province of Agra and has demanded the right to Meerut territories in Agra, was a twist in the middle of the temple restoration line.

The plea held that the plaintiff belonged to the Beswan family and heir of Raja Rohini Raman Dhawaj Prasad Singh and descendants of Raja Nand Ram who died in 1695.

“When Aurangzeb firmly established himself on the throne, Nand Ram submitted to the emperor and was rewarded with the Khidmat zamindari, the management of the revenues of Joar and Tochigarh,” reads the plea.

In 1947, during the era of Raja Rohini Raman Dhawaj Prasad Singh, British India and its provinces became free and independent, the plea read. However, after India’s independence in 1947, the Indian government did not enter into any treaties, accessions or agreements with the ruling family, the plaintiff argued.

“Central Government, Delhi State Government and Uttar Pradesh State Government without due process encroached on plaintiff’s legal rights and abused power, allotted, allotted and died with the plaintiff’s property,” he added.

The main suit in this case alleged that around 27 Hindu and Jain temples were desecrated and damaged in 1198 under the slave dynasty emperor Qutub-ud-din-Aibak who built the said mosque in place of these temples. The temples were dismantled, desecrated and damaged under the command of the Emperor of the Slave Dynasty, who raised a construction on the same spot and named it the Quwwat-Ul-Islam Mosque, according to the plea.
