    Lawyer Harish Salve submitted in Supreme Court 'we are beyond 1992-1993. All that remains is a title dispute over property. It should be decided just like a title suit, and not on other grounds'

    "Lawyer Raju Ramchandran, appearing for Sunni Waqf Board submitted to the Supreme Court that the matter be referred to a larger constitutional bench. Ramachandran further submitted that the issue needs larger consideration keeping in view that it is a national issue", reports ANI.

    The Supreme Court was to decide if the case needs to be transferred to a larger bench, after hearing arguments from disputed parties. The matter has been adjourned until May 15, 2018.

    The top court earlier dismissed all 32 intervention petitions, including applications of Shyam Benegal, Aparna Sen, and Teesta Setalvad, in the case.

    During the previous hearing, a bench, comprising of Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra, Justices Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazeer, had directed the registry not to entertain any intervention application in the Ayodhya case.

    The top court also rejected the intervention plea of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy in the matter.
