SC rejects all interim pleas to intervene as parties

The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected all interim pleas seeking to intervene as parties in the sensitive Babri masjid-Ram temple land dispute case. A Special Bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices Ashok Bhushan and S.A. Najeeb accepted the contention that only original parties to the dispute be allowed to advance arguments in the case and the intervention applications of unrelated persons seeking implement as parties are rejected.
