Earlier, the top court had extended by three months the time for completion of trial in the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case and said that the judgement should be delivered by August 31. The court asked special judge SK Yadav to control the proceedings in accordance with the law so that inordinate delay that is beyond the time-frame is no longer breached.

A bench of Justices RF Nariman and Surya Kant, heard the matter through video conferencing, passed the orders on receiving a letter from the special judge seeking the extension of time granted to him for completing the trial in the politically sensitive case.
