The Ayodhya's Ram-Janmabhoomi Babri Masjid land dispute matter will be heard by the Supreme Court on February 26, the court said on Wednesday. The matter will be heard by a five-judge Constitution Bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi.
Earlier on January 27, the apex court had cancelled the scheduled hearing for January 29, due to the unavailability of Justice SA Bobde, one of the five judges of the Constitution Bench.

Besides CJI and Justice Bobde, members of the bench are Justices DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and SA Nazeer.
The bench will hear the appeals against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among three parties - the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.
