Supreme Court dismisses pleas seeking review of Nov 9 Ayodhya case verdict

Five review pleas filed were filed against the apex court's November 9 judgement. One petition was filed by the Muslims parties and one by a group of intellectuals. The Nirmohi Akhara, which was ousted as the sebait, or a caretaker, and instead given a single-member representation in any trust or body which would be set up to build a Ram temple at the site, had also filed a review of the ruling.

Ayodhya verdict: SC dismisses all review petitions
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday threw out multiple pleas for a review of its ruling handing over the entire disputed land in Ayodhya to the deity, Ram Lalla.

The legal process may still not be over, as the parties could file curative petitions against the ruling.

“We do not find ground whatsoever to entertain the same (demand),” a bench led by Chief Justice SA Bobde said. The other judges on the bench were Justices DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan, S Abdul Nazeer and Sanjiv Khanna.

At least 19 review pleas had been filed in the case. These included petitions by the Nirmohi Akhara, one of the litigants in the case that sought a clarification on its role and representation on a trust that the court had said should be set up to construct a temple at the site. While a group of intellectuals had called upon the court to reflect on and “correct” its ruling, several petitions by Muslims had challenged the decision to hand over the land on which the Babri Masjid once stood to the Hindus.
