    The Supreme Court on Wednesday reserved its order after concluding the 40-day hearing in the politically sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case. On 6 December 1992, Babri Masjid, a 16th century mosque, was demolished by Hindu groups who want a Ram temple built at the site. The case pertains to the ownership of the land to decide whether a temple can be constructed at the site where the Babri Masjid existed earlier.

    A date for the pronouncement of the verdict wasn’t announced as the bench five-judge bench, comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justices S.A. Bopde, D.Y. Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S. Abdul Nazeer, directed the parties to submit the rest of their submissions in a written form in the next three days.

    The Constitution bench started the day-to-day proceedings on 6 August after mediation proceedings failed to find an amicable solution to the vexed dispute.

    Fourteen appeals have been filed at the SC so far against the 2010 Allahabad high court judgment, which said that the disputed 22.7 acres should be equally divided among the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.

    In anticipation of the verdict and the security and safety issues it could throw up in the wake of a decision on highly polarized and religious issue, the state government has imposed prohibitory orders against unlawful assemblies and undesirable activities. They will be in force till December 10. The administration has also demanded more security forces to maintain law and order and communal harmony in the state.

    District Magistrate Anuj Kumar Jha told PTI that the prohibitory order restricts drones, unmanned aerial vehicle for filming and shooting inside Ayodhya. The sale and purchase of crackers will not be allowed on the occasion of Diwali without permission of the magistrate.
