Ayodhya Dispute: Justice UU Lalit Recuses Himself From Hearing, Case Deferred To Jan 29

The Ayodhya land dispute which was scheduled for hearing today i.e., January 10, 2019, by the five-judge Constitution Bench has been rescheduled for hearing on January 29, 2019.

The development came after Justice U.U. Lalit, who was part of a five-judge Constitution Bench to hear the Ayodhya land dispute case recused himself saying he had been a lawyer in a related case.

Senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for a Muslim party, also told a Bench headed by Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi that Justice Lalit appeared for former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh in 1994. Though Mr. Dhavan had not sought for Justice Lalit’s recusal.

The other judges on the Constitution Bench are JusticesS.A. Bobde, N.V. Ramana and D.Y. Chandrachud.
