The Supreme Court on Friday said that the mediation panel in the Ayodhya case “has not been able to achieve any final settlement” and the court will start hearing the appeals from August 6.
The Supreme Court was considering the “outcome” of mediation proceedings conducted by a panel set up to amicably resolve the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute in Ayodhya.
A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, on July 18, had asked the three-member mediation panel, headed by former apex court judge F M I Kalifulla, to inform the court about the outcome of the mediation proceedings as on July 31 by August 1 to enable it to proceed further in the matter.
It is understood that the Kalifulla panel has submitted its report on Thursday in a sealed cover about the progress made in the in-camera mediation proceedings.
The bench, which had perused a report about the progress of mediation process till July 18, had said that its contents will remain confidential as per its earlier order.
