Prime News, National (New Delhi), November 9:- The 2.77-acre disputed land in Ayodhya will be given to a trust to be set up by the Centre and Sunni Waqf board will be given five acres of alternate land, the Supreme Court announced on Saturday in a historic verdict.
A five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi delivered a unanimous verdict.
The top court said the Sunni Waqf Board should be given “alternate land” where they can build a mosque and trust should be formed within three months.
The bench, also comprising Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer, said rights of the disputed 2.77-acre land will be handed over to the deity Ram Lalla, who is one of the three litigants in the case. The possession, however, will remain with a central government receiver. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
