Story highlights

A bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi was supposed to hear the plea today. 

The Supreme Court of India on Thursday began hearing a plea for early hearing on Ayodhya land dispute case.

This comes after the apex court, earlier this week, on Tuesday allowed a plaintiff to file an application seeking an early hearing in the Ram Mandir-Babri mosque title dispute case. 

Plaintiff Gopal Singh Visharad moved India's top court claiming that not much progress has been made in the court-ordered mediation process in the case.

A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi agreed to consider the matter and allowed the plaintiff to file an application.

The court had appointed a mediation panel previously to resolve the dispute. The mediation panel is led by former Supreme Court judge FM Khalifullah along with spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and senior advocate Sri Ram Panchu.
