The Supreme Court
will form a new Constitution Bench to hear the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid
land title dispute after Justice U U Lalit recused himself.
The five-judge Constitution Bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice S A Bobde, Justice N V Ramana, Justice D Y Chandrachud, and Justice Lalit had assembled on Thursday when a petitioner’s lawyer pointed out that Justice Lalit had appeared as a lawyer for then Uttar Pradesh
CM Kalyan Singh in 1994, after which the judge recused himself.
