The Supreme Court on Wednesday concluded the hearing on decades-old Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case. The five-judge Constitution Bench, led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, has reserved the judgement over Ram Mandir dispute.

It was the last day of the hearing and the apex court witnessed the high drama in the afternoon. The hearing resumed on the 40th day, where the Supreme Court refused to accept any intervention in the case and ordered that the day-to-day hearings will conclude at 5 pm on Wednesday.

While dismissing the intervention application filed by Hindu Mahasabha, the CJI said: “Enough is enough. The hearing is going to be completed today.” Now, the judgement is expected to be out before November 17, when the CJI Gogoi will retire.
