An appropriate bench of Supreme court will now hear the land dispute case of Ram-Janmabhoomi and Babri-Masjid on January 10.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice S K Kaul said, "Further orders will be passed by an appropriate bench on January 10 for fixing the date of hearing the matter."

Justices, Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazir are most likely to be the part of a new bench as they are part of the earlier bench who handled the case. The third judge will be appointed before January 10 by CJI Ranjan Gogoi.

The announcement on Friday came after prime minister Narendra Modi said that any decision on an authoritative order on Ram temple in Ayodhya can happen only after the completion of the judicial process.

"Let the judicial process take its own course. Don't weigh it in political terms. Let the judicial process be over. After the judicial process is over, whatever be our responsibility as a government, we are ready to make all efforts," prime minister Narendra Modi said during an interview broadcasted by several channels.

Right-wing outfits such us the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) have been demanding early ordinance and putting pressure on the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Central government for early construction of Ram Mandir at disputed land.

Earlier on November 12, the apex court had rejected a plea seeking an early ordinance in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case.
