NEW DELHI — Keeping in view the approaching deadline to complete the hearing of Ram Janmabhoomi Babri Masjid Ayodhya land dispute case, Supreme Court has decided to devote an extra hour to the case starting from Monday.

The Supreme Court has set October 18 as deadline for completion of all arguments in the protracted land title dispute, a move that has raised the possibility of a verdict in the politically sensitive case by the middle of November.

A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, which was hearing the decades-old land dispute case on the 28th day, told the counsel for both the Hindu and Muslim parties that it has decided to rise at 5 pm instead of 4 pm, which is the scheduled time to end the day’s proceedings in the top court, reports PTI.

“We can sit for extra one hour from Monday (September 23),” the bench which also comprise Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and SA Nazeer said.
