The Ayodhya case hearing was adjourned today after Judge UU Lalit leaves the hearing saying he was a lawyer in a related case earlier. A five-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, was hearing the Ayodhya temple-mosque case today. It was expected to take a call on the frequency of hearings in the case.
There are four other judges on the Constitution Bench are Justice SA Bobde, Justice NV Ramana, Justice UU Lalit and Justice DY Chandrachud.
