five-judge Constitution bench comprising of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazeer, will hear an application filed by one of the litigants in the Ayodhya case seeking early hearing of the matter on Thursday. The top court will hear the case at 10:30 AM on Thursday.
Senior advocate P S Narsimha, who appeared for litigant Gopal Singh Visharad, told the bench headed by Chief Justice on Tuesday that the apex court should list title dispute case for urgent hearing because “nothing much has been happening” in the case which was referred to the three-member mediation panel by the SC. After hearing advocate Narsimha’s argument, the SC asked him whether he had filed an application for early hearing. The advocate replied saying that he had already done so.
