A new five-judge Constitution Bench was constituted in the Supreme Court Friday to hear the politically sensitive Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid land title dispute in Ayodhya. The bench was re-constituted as Justice U U Lalit, who was a member of the original bench had recused himself from hearing the matter.

The new bench comprises Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S A Nazeer. Justice N V Ramana, who was in the bench which last heard the matter on January 10, is also not a member in the new bench.
