On Tuesday, the apex court rejected the request of KN Govindacharya for the live streaming as well as audio or video recording of the case.
The daily hearing of the case is being conducted by a five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi. On August 2, the bench had taken note of the mediation proceedings which went on for about four months and said that it did not result in any final settlement.
The highly-debated dispute involves a 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya where stood a 16th-century mosque, known to have been built by Mughal emperor Babur, that was demolished in 1992.
Fourteen appeals are pending before the Supreme Court against the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict which had ordered an equal division of the disputed land.
