The hearing in the case relating to the Ayodhya/Babri Masjid-Ram Mandir case is currently underway at the Supreme Court of India.
The case is being heard by a Constitution Bench of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazeer.
In March this year, the Bench referred the Ayodhya dispute to a mediation panel comprising of former Supreme Court judge Justice FMI Kalifulla, spiritualist Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and Senior Advocate Sriram Panchu.
The day-to-day hearings in the case commenced yesterday, with the first set of arguments being made on behalf of the Nirmohi Akhara. The Akhara had filed an impleadment application in April this year, in view of apprehensions that the Central Government is deliberating the release of superfluous land. The Nirmohi Akhara has staked a claim in a part of the land sought to be so returned. Read an account of the arguments made yesterday here.
