New Delhi, December 12, 2019: In a big blow in the Ayodhya dispute case, the Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed all 18 review petitions filed against its November 9 verdict. The review petitions were filed by both the Hindu and Muslim sides.

A five-judge bench of the Supreme Court led by Chief Justice SA Bobde and also comprising Justices DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan, SA Nazeer and Sanjeev Khanna dismissed the review pleas during an in-chamber hearing.

On November 9, the Supreme Court had ruled in the decades-old Ayodhya dispute case and given the 2.77-acre disputed land to the deity Ram Lalla Virajman. The court had transferred the land to a receiver of the Central government.

On November 9, SC had ruled in the decades-old Ayodhya dispute case  and ordered the land to be handed over to Ram Lalla through a trust to build the Hindu temple. It also ordered the government to give an alternate of 5 acres of land to the Sunni Waqf Board to construct a mosque. The court said in its verdict that the Nirmohi Akhara is not a shebiat or devotee of the deity Ram Lallah and the Akhara’s suit was barred by limitation.
