Ayodhya land dispute case: SC directs all parties to wind up arguments by Oct 18

Prime News, National, New Delhi, September 26:- The Supreme Court has asked all the parties to the Ayodhya land dispute case to specify the time frame for completing arguments saying that there will not be any extra day after October 18. The court asked the Muslim parties to wrap up their arguments on the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) report during the course of the day.

It said there are holidays in October and only one advocate of the four Hindu parties will be allowed to give rejoinder arguments.  Meanwhile, the Muslim parties today took a U-turn on questioning the authorship of the 2003 report of the ASI and apologised to the Supreme Court for wasting its time.

A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi was told by senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan that they do not wish to question the authorship of the summary of the ASI report.

On Wednesday, senior advocate Meenakshi Arora, also representing the Muslim parties, had questioned the ASI report, saying every chapter is attributed to an author but the summary has not been attributed to anyone. (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
