The Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi, in consultation with the with the four other judges, on late Friday evening decided to deliver its verdict on the Ayodhya land dispute case at 10:30 am on Saturday.
Headed by CJI Gogoi, the five-judge constitution bench had reserved its judgement on October 16 after a marathon hearing of 40 days.
Earlier on Friday, the CJI met top Uttar Pradesh officials to discuss law-and-order arrangements in the state in this regard.
The other members of the bench are Justices SA Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer.
Until recently there was no clarity as when the final verdict on the much followed case in the Indian history would be delivered, other than the fact that it would be pronounced before CJI Gogoi retires on November 18.
