In a major development in the Triple Talaq issue that has been the focus of much coverage, the Supreme Court has taken the first step towards the framing of issues in the case.
A Bench of the Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justices NV Ramana and DY Chandrachud today received four questions from the Central government to be considered by the Court in the matter.
The following questions were submitted by the Centre for the consideration of the Court:
It might be interesting to note that the Bench seemed particularly inclined to refer the matter to a Constitution Bench, an inference which was given impetus by the CJI’s reluctance to speak on behalf of his brethren “who might be a part of the Bench”.
The Supreme Court had hinted at a Constitution bench reference previously in June last year, when TS Thakur was Chief Justice of India.
The matter is now posted for March 30, which is when the Court is expected to frame questions for the consideration of a larger bench.
As has previously been reported, the case will be heard by the apex court in the summer vacation.
