A bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar said: “It will be heard soon. We are taking a decision on this”. On March 22, the CJI had surprised opposing parties by appealing for a negotiated settlement and even offering his services as a mediator.
The HC on September 30, 2010 had delivered a judgement dividing the 2.7 acre disputed land into three equal parts between Sunni Wakf Board, Nirmohi Akhara and ‘Ram Lalla’, the idol.
The SC had stayed the HC verdict on May 9, 2011 with the judges on the bench — Aftab Alam and R M Lodha — terming the decision strange as no party to the suits had claimed relief on the lines decided by the HC.
