August 24, 2009 14:44 IST

The Central Bureau of Investigation on Monday filed its interim report on the 23 missing files related to the Ayodhya title suits in a special court.

Additional solicitor general Ashok Nigam filed the interim report in a sealed cover before the special full bench comprising justices S R Alam, Sudhir Agarwal and Justice D V Sharma as directed by the court in its earlier order on July 15 last.

On court's query whether the state government was cooperating with the investigations, Nigam said it was fully cooperating and assured that the investigations would be completed within September 21 time frame set by the court.

Nigam also requested the court to keep the report in a sealed cover. In its earlier order, the court while directing the CBI to take over investigations of the missing files related to the Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri mosque land dispute and completing it in two months time had also directed the CBI to submit an interim report on August 24.
