Lucknow, Oct 5 (ANI): The hearing in the Babri mosque demolition case was deferred on Tuesday and the next date of hearing will take place on October 26, as the notification for nomination of a judge is still to be issued by the Allahabad High Court.
"The matter was not taken up today as a notification regarding nomination of magistrate is yet to be issued by the High Court. The next date of hearing will take place on October 26," said prosecution sources.
The special CBI court hearing Babri demolition case is lying vacant after the transfer of Chief Judicial Magistrate Gulab Singh.
It has been reported that District Judge has written a letter to the High Court requesting to nominate a judge in the special court.
The Babri mosque was demolished on December 6, 1992.
Earlier on September 30, the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court ruled by majority that the disputed land in Ayodhya be divided into three parts.
The high court bench decided to divide the disputed 2.7 acres of land into three parts, with each of the three parties to the suit getting a part of it.
The ownership of the disputed land has been divided as follows: (1) Ram Lala, the birthplace of Lord Ram, given to Lord Ram (2) Sita Rasoi and Ram Chabootra to Nirmohi Akhara and (3) The remaining part to be given to the Sunni Waqf Board.
Meanwhile, there will be a status quo in Ayodhya for three months during which a petition can be filed.
The Sunni Waqf Board has, however, expressed dissatisfaction with the judgement and decided to file an appeal in the Supreme Court against the Ayodhya verdict. (ANI)
