Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed a batch of petitions seeking review of its November 9 Ayodhya land dispute case verdict, which cleared the way for construction of Ram Temple at the disputed site.
A five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde, which took these review pleas for consideration in-chamber, rejected them after finding no merits.
There were 18 review petitions, out of which nine had been filed by parties who were part of the earlier litigation and the other nine filed by “third parties”.
The bench considered review pleas of only those who were parties to the four lawsuits filed initially.
With the rejection of these review petitions, the consequential request of parties for an open court hearing on these pleas also got dismissed.
