New Delhi, Feb 8: The Supreme Court on Thursday fixed next date of hearing in sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case for 14 March as some of the documents and translations are yet to be filed before it.

However, the three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice S. Abdul Nazeer, made it clear that it would deal with the case as a “pure land dispute”.

It said no new party will be added in the case. The dispute will be discussed for three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Lord Ram deity.

The apex court asked parties before Allahabad HC in Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute to file in two weeks English translation of documents exhibited by them. It also directs its Registry to provide copies of video cassettes, which were part of HC records, to parties on actual cost, News 18 reported.

Last year on December 5, the bench headed by CJI had said that they would resume hearing on the petitions from February 8.

The bench of the Allahabad High Court, in a 2:1 majority ruling, in 2010 had ordered that the land would be partitioned equally among three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Lord Ram deity.
