New Delhi, Mar 5 (UNI) The Supreme Court today granted time till April 15 to the petitioners, including former Union Minister Subramanian Swamy, to respond to the six-page affidavit on Ram Sethu filed by the Centre.
Dr Swamy told the bench, headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, that he had received the copy of the affidavit only yesterday and needed time to file rejoinder.
The Centre in its affidavit had stated that there were no scientific evidence available to prove that Ram Sethu, also known as Adam's Bridge, was man-made.
