New Delhi: The Supreme Court today said that it is not hearing review pleas of Sabarimala case and only considering issues referred to by five-judge bench.
The Supreme Court has given three weeks to all the lawyers for finalisation of issues relating to Sabarimala and other matters. The order was given by the nine-judge bench which was led by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sharad Arvind Bobde, and included Justices R Banumathi, Ashok Bhushan, L Nageswara Rao, Mohan M Shantanagoudar, Abdul Mazeer, Sudhash Reddy, BR Gavai and Surya Kant.
The lawyers will next meet on January 17.
SC says its Secretary General will coordinate with lawyers in reframing or adding issues to be dealt by it.
The CJI said that the bench is thinking of listing all petitions including entry of Muslim women to mosques, female genital mutilation among Dawoodi Borah and entry of Parsi women to fire place.
“All these matters will be heard by this bench after fine tuning of issues,” CJI Bobde said.
