SC to hear Ayodhya case for an hour more from next week | Master Stroke

Updated 20 Sep 2019 11:08 PM

The Supreme Court on Friday decided to extend the daily hearing of the Ayodhya title dispute case by an hour from Monday next week. The court had earlier set October 18 as the deadline to conclude the hearing on the matter.

A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi has been holding the daily hearing on the matter after the court appointed mediation panel headed by a former apex court judge failed to arrive at an amicable resolution.

On the 28th day of the hearing, the bench told the counsel of the Hindu and Muslim parties that a decision has been made by the judges that they could squeeze in an extra hour for the hearing. The bench usually rises at 4 p.m. everyday, which is the general time to conclude the hearing of various matters. But, for the Ayodhya case the judges will sit till 5 p.m., giving one hour extra to the court proceedings.

"We can sit for extra one hour from Monday (September 23)," said the bench, which besides the CJI, has Justices S. A. Bobde, D. Y. Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S. A. Nazeer as the other members.
