"We will take a decision on it," a bench comprising Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud said when BJP leader Subramanian Swamy mentioned the matter for urgent listing and hearing.
Mr Swamy said that the main appeals against the Allahabad High Court order are pending for the last seven years in the top court and they required urgent hearing. He also said that a separate petition had earlier been filed by him seeking enforcement of his right to worship without much hassle at the site.
The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court had in 2010 ruled a three-way division of the disputed 2.77 acres area in Ayodhya. The three-judge bench, by a 2:1 majority, had said the land be partitioned equally among three parties, the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and 'Ram Lalla'.
