Ayodhya review petitions rejected
All review petitions seeking a review of the Ayodhya verdict were rejected by a five-judge Bench of the Supreme Court.
The new five-judge bench was headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde and comprises Justices Ashok Bhushan, S A Nazeer, D Y Chandrachud and Sanjiv Khanna. Justice Khanna is the new judge on the bench who has replaced retired Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi.
A total of 18 review petitions have been filed in the Supreme Court seeking review of its November 9 judgement.
Supreme Court's Ayodhya verdict
On November 9, the Supreme Court delivered a unanimous judgment in the title suit of the disputed area awarding it to the Hindu parties for the construction of a temple.
It also directed the Centre to come up with a scheme within three months to set up a trust which will hand over the outer courtyard and inner courtyard of the site for construction of a temple.
Apart from this, the SC stated that an alternate land of 5 acres is to be allotted to Muslims for the liberty of constructing a mosque, either by the central govt or the State govt, in a suitable and prominent place in Ayodhya.
