Shirdi Sai Baba Trust panel appointments challenged in Bombay High Court

The article below is about SHIRDI Sai Baba trust and NOT Sathya Sai Baba Trust of Puttaparthi/Prasanthi Nilayam

'Saibaba trust panel appointments given as reward to politicos', http://www.mid-day.com/articles/saibaba-trust-panel-appointments-given-as-reward-to-politicos/17492171, dated August 3rd 2016

The article states that the Maharashtra state govt's recently appointed committee of the Shirdi Sai Baba trust (one of the richest temple trusts in India) has mostly people who are affiliated to political parties (ruling political parties' alliance in Maharashtra). A petitioner (Surinder Arora) has challenged these appointments in Bombay High court on 2nd August 2016 as violating a previous order of the High court on this matter "against appointing those with criminal antecedents and political affiliations".
