Prayagraj, Dec 6 (PTI) The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday asked the Prayagraj district administration to ensure that the property of 'Chhoti Karbala Kabristan' (graveyard) shall not be usurped or encroached upon.

Abu Talib, a close aide of slain gangster Atiq Ahmad, allegedly had encroached on the graveyard situated in Chakia area of the city.

A two-judge bench of Justice MC Tripathi and Justice Prashant Kumar passed the order on a petition filed by the Sunni Waqf Board which manages the graveyard.
