Supreme Court
New Delhi, Sep 23: The Supreme Court has stayed the Ayodhya verdict, scheduled to be delivered by Allahabad High Court on Sep 24, by one week.

The apex court on Thursday, Sep 23 decided to hear the High Court verdict deferment plea on Tuesday, Sep 28 and has also sent notices to all parties involved in the title suit.

Retired bureaucrat Ramesh Chand Tripathi filed a petition in the apex court on Wednesday, Sep 22 seeking the postponement of the High Court verdict citing that the verdict could trigger off communal tensions at a time when the central government and the state government are both busy tackling other pressing issues like the Commonwealth Games (CWG) and floods.

This means that the High Court will not be delivering its verdict on the Ayodhya title suit on Sep 24. Now, all eyes will be on the Sep 28 hearing of the postponement petition.

While putting off the HC verdict, the court observed that the decision was taken on public interest in line with the plea of Tripathi.

It will only be clear after the Sep 28 postponement hearing, whether the High Court will be allowed to pass its verdict on next Friday, Oct 1 or if the judgment will further be postponed till after the Oct 3 to Oct 14 Commonwealth Games are wrapped up.
