New Delhi. The Supreme Court of India has mandated the three member mediation panel status report on the prospects of cordial settlement of the Ram Janmabhoomi- Babri Masjid dispute.  The Apex Court has ordered report submission by July 18th. The SC bench chaired by the Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, stated that the Court will continue its regular hearings on July 25th, given the mediation panel fails to find an amicable solution to the decades old dispute.   


"We deem it proper to request head of mediation panel justice FMI Kallifullah to submit report by next Thursday," the SC bench observed.

Gopal Singh Visharad’s son Rajendra Singh, one of the original plaintiffs in the civil suit in Ayodhya land dispute case, lodged an application for the early hearing of the case stating that no progress has been made in mediation commanded by the SC.

The observations of the bench came on Thursday, post hearing the plea that urged the court to conclude the mediation process in the Ayodhya land dispute, citing mediation is not possible in the case.

The constitution bench of 5 judges, headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi, extended the time of mediation panel till August 15th, to complete the proceedings. The other two members in the panel include spiritual leader and founder of Art of Living Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and senior advocate Sriram Panchu. Justices S.A Bobde, D.Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S. Abdul Nazeer were part of the bench.
