Ayodhya case: Supreme Court to consider mediation panel’s report, decide future course of action

The Supreme Court is likely to consider on Friday the outcome of the mediation proceedings conducted by a panel set up to amicably resolve the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute at Ayodhya and may decide the future course of action by deciding either to hear it or to continue with the mediation. A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, on July 18, had asked the three-member mediation panel, headed by former apex court judge F M I Kalifulla, to inform the court about the outcome of the mediation proceedings as on July 31 by August 1 to enable it to proceed further in the matter.
