Hearing of the politically sensitive case of Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land title dispute in Ayodhya was adjourned earlier after Justice UU Lalit recused himself from the case. 

Lalit had recused himself from the case after a senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for a Muslim party had told the bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi that Justice Lalit had appeared for former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh in 1994.

The court had then directed its registry to go through all the records relating to the Ayodhya case which are available with it and submit a report by January 29 as to how much time it would require for translating the documents and the case material which are in Persian, Arabic, Urdu and Gurmukhi languages.
