New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India on Wednesday decided to hear the Ram-Janmabhoomi Babri Masjid land dispute matter on February 26.
It will be heard by a five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi.
The apex court on January 27 had cancelled the scheduled hearing for January 29 as Justice SA Bobde, one of the five judges of the Constitution Bench, was not available that day.
Besides the CJI Gogoi and Justice Bobde, members of the bench are Justices DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and SA Nazeer.
The bench will hear the appeals against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77 acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among three parties, the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla. The Allahabad HC had delivered the verdict after hearing four civil suits.
