New Delhi, Oct 9: The Supreme Court on Tuesday declined an early hearing of pleas seeking a review of a Constitution Bench verdict allowing entry of women in the age group of 10 to 50 years into the Sabarimala temple in Kerala. 

A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi declined the plea. A review petition is considered by the judges of the bench that had delivered the judgement.

The Nair Service Society (NSS) and others had approached the apex court on Monday (October 8) demanding the recall.

On the other hand, the Kerala government has said that it would take steps for implementing the verdict.

On September 28, the Supreme Court allowed the entry of the women in the temple dedicated to Lord Ayyappa, saying the ban violated their fundamental rights and constitutional guarantees.
