New Delhi [India],Oct 13 (ANI): The Supreme Court will on Friday pronounce its order on ban on women's entry into Sabarimala temple in Kerala.

Earlier, in February, the apex court had reserved an order on referring the case to a constitution bench.

The top court has been hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) challenging the ban on entry of women into the Sabarimala hill temple.

The temple, situated in Pathanamthitta district, restricts women aged between 10 and 50 from taking the pilgrimage to Sabarimala temple.

In January 2016, the court had questioned the ban, saying this cannot be done under the Constitution. (ANI)
