    The apex Court also raised six questions on the issue to be considered by the Constitution bench.

    Earlier, in February, the top court had reserved an order on referring the case to a constitution bench. The apex court has been hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL), challenging the ban on entry of women into the Sabarimala Hill Temple.

    The temple, situated in Pathanamthitta district, restricts women aged between 10 and 50 from taking the pilgrimage to Sabarimala Temple.

    In January 2016, the court had questioned the ban, saying this cannot be done under the Constitution.

    Meanwhile, women's rights activists are hoping for a positive judgment today.
