Out of court settlement proves futile

A Constitution Bench led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi will commence hearing on Ayodhya appeals from August 6 on a day-to-day basis.

The Bench decided to hear the appeals after it declared that the efforts to mediate a final settlement between rival Hindu and Muslim parties in the Ayodhya title dispute cases have failed.

The Bench said the appeals of Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla, the Hindu deity, would be heard first.

Meanwhile, a Bench led by Justice S.A. Bobde asked a petitioner, K.N. Govindacharya, to give a representation for live streaming of the Ayodhya case proceedings before the Constitution Bench.

‘No equipment’

Justice Bobde, during an oral mentioning, told senior advocate Vikas Singh, for Mr. Govindacharya, that the court might not have the equipment for live streaming, but nevertheless, asked the latter to move on the administrative side of the apex court. The court, in a judgment last year, had directed live streaming of important proceedings of national importance.
