    Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed for peace as the Supreme Court is set to deliver its verdict on the historic Ayodhya dispute tomorrow at 10:30 am. Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, who would be retiring on November 17 this year, would be leading the five-judge constitution bench that comprise justices Sharad Bobde, DY Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S Abdul Nazeer. Bobde, who will take over as the next Chief Justice of India, said that Ayodhya case is ‘one of the most important cases in the world.’

    Schools and colleges in Uttar Pradesh (UP) would remain shut in the state from Saturday to Monday. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked for two helicopters to be kept on standby – one in Lucknow and other one in Ayodhya – for emergency.
