Hearing the Ayodhya land dispute case for the 25th day, Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said that it is possible that all the submissions in the case will be completed by 18 October.

The matter of disputed land in Ayodhya is currently being heard by a Constitution Bench comprising of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazeer. CJI in his order said, “As per the estimate of tentative dates to finish the hearing in the case, we can say that the submissions have to be likely completed by October 18.

Advocate Rajeev Dhavan, who is representing the Muslim side, said that they would complete the arguments by the end of next week. While lawyers from Ram Lalla party said they will take two days.

The constitution bench is hearing the appeals against the September 30, 2010 verdict of the Allahabad High Court in Ayodhya land dispute case. In its verdict, Allahabad high court had divided the 2.77-acre in Ayodhya among the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla equally. Daily hearings were started from 6th august after the mediation panel headed by Judge FM Ibrahim Kalifullah failed to find an amicable solution and reach any conclusion.

It is reported that Ranjan Gogoi is set to retire on 17 November and he wants to finalize the matter before his departure. The bench has allowed mediation process to go on along with the daily hearings.

The court also said that if any settlement is reached through mediation, it can be placed before the bench. The suggestion of simultaneously pursuing mediation process came after UP Sunni Waqf Board chairman wrote to the panel for relooking at the mediation option once again.
