A five-judge Constitution bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, on Thursday, said all the parties shall conclude their arguments and submissions by October 18 in the Ayodhya title dispute.

‘We could not hear the case beyond the period in the Ayodhya Ram Temple and Babri Masjid land (Title) dispute case,’ CJI Gogoi said. “Please complete all your submissions and arguments by October 18. You all shall complete. We can not hear any arguments and submission beyond October 18.”

A batch of petitions has challenged the September 2010 Allahabad High Court trifurcation of the 2.77 acres disputed site at Ayodhya.

Hindu side has completed their arguments and submissions before the Supreme Court. At present, Muslim parties are canvassing pleadings before it.
