Review of Sabarimala verdict: SC to hear pleas on February 6
NEW DELHI: A five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court would hear on February 6 a batch of petitions seeking review of its judgment allowing entry of women of all age groups into Kerala's Sabarimala temple.
As per a notice uploaded on the apex court's website, the review petitions would be heard by a constitution bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices R F Nariman, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Indu Malhotra.
On September 28 last year, a five-judge constitution bench, headed by the then Chief Justice Dipak Misra, in a 4:1 verdict had paved the way for entry of women of all ages into the Sabarimala temple, saying the ban amounted to gender discrimination.
On November 13 last year, the apex court had agreed to hear in open court in January this year the pleas seeking review of its verdict, but had refused to stay the judgment.
