New Delhi, Sep 25: A 3 judge bench headed by Chief Justice S H Kapadia will decide the fate of the special leave petition seeking deferment of the Allahabad High Court verdict on the Ayodhya title suit on Tuesday, Sep 28.

The other judges are Justice Aftab Alam and Justice KS Radhakrishnan.

The apex court had on Thursday, Sep 23, stayed for a week the High Court verdict following the petition moved by a retired bureaucrat Ramesh Chand Tripathi seeking deferment of the verdict to explore the possibility of an out-of-court settlement.

The apex court had passed the interim stay amidst sharp differences of opinion on the issue of staying the verdict between Justice RV Raveendran and Justice HL Gokhale.

The court had also asked Attorney General G E Vahanvati to be present and assist the court when the matter comes up on Tuesday, Sep 28.

Tuesday"s special hearing assumed considerable importance in view of the fact that one of the three judges of the Ayodhya bench in Lucknow-Justice D V Sharma- is due to demit office on Oct 1.
