New Delhi [India], Oct 27 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Friday will hear the Uttar Pradesh Government's plea seeking recall of its earlier order for the demolition of an under-construction multi-level parking lot near the historic Taj Mahal in Agra.
The apex court on October 24, ordered demolition of the parking lot around Mughal mausoleum, Taj Mahal.
The apex court noted that the parking lot could be an environmental hazard, a lawyer appearing for Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) said.
