Indian SC reserves judgment in Babri Masjid land dispute case


NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Wednesday concluded the hearing of Babri Masjid land dispute case and has reserved the judgment.

According to Hidustan Times, a five-judge Constitution bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi also asked the parties to file written submissions on the moulding of relief in three days.

Earlier in the day, the Court Room 1 witnessed high drama as senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, representing the Sunni Waqf Board, tore papers handed to him by the All India Hindu Maha Sabha’s counsel. The papers apparently contained a map illustrating the birthplace of Lord Ram.

Dhavan later said the CJI Ranjan Gogoi allowed him to tear the papers. The CJI sarcastically said he indeed had allowed Dhavan to tear the pages.
