New Delhi [India] Feb 8 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Thursday fixed March 14 as the next date of hearing in Ayodhya case.

The three-judge bench gave the next date as some of the documents and translations were yet to be filed before the apex court.

The Supreme Court was likely to start 'final hearings' on a bunch of 13 petitions over the 2.7 acre disputed Ayodhya site that is claimed by both Hindus and Muslims.

The petitions before the judges relate to the 2010 verdict of the Allahabad High Court in the title suit that had been pending for nearly six decades. The dispute before the court was whether the 2.7 acres of disputed land on which the Babri Masjid stood before it was demolished on December 6, 1992, belongs to the Sunni Central Waqf Board or to the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha.

Thousands of Hindu karsevaks had demolished the Babri mosque in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992. Around 2,000 people were killed in the riots that followed the Babri Masjid demolition. (ANI)
