The immovable properties belonging to Sri Vedantha Desikar Devasthanam in Mylapore were returned to it, T Subbaraman and four others informed the Madras High Court on April 4.

The submission was made when a contempt application from the Devasthanam, by its trustees, came up before a division bench comprising Justices R Banumathi and K Ravichandra Babu.

In view of the submission made by Subbaraman and others, S Sathya Narayanan, the counsel for the Devasthanam, told the judges that he was not pressing the contempt application. And the bench dismissed it as not pressed.

According to Sathya Narayanan, known as Mylai Sathya, the bench headed by Justice Banumathi on November 8, 2011 passed an order in favour of the Devasthanam. But Subbaraman and others did not comply with the order. Hence, the present contempt application.

Subbaraman and others told the court on April 4 that the vacant possession of the properties in question had been handed over to the Devasthanam on April 1 last.
