Last year, centuries-old tradition changed after SC intervened
In 2018, a bench led by former CJI Dipak Misra and including Justices Rohinton Nariman, AM Khanwilkar, DY Chandrachud, and Indu Malhotra, struck down the centuries-old norm of not letting menstruating women into Sabarimala Temple of Lord Ayyappa in Kerala.
This verdict was seen as a huge win for women's rights, but some groups didn't agree and filed a review plea.
Apart from CJI, the other four judges who are part of the bench are the ones who had signed the September 28 order last year. After hearing arguments, SC had reserved the order in February this year. The verdict will be out at 10:30 am.
Separately, contempt plea against Rahul will also be heard
The third case whose verdict will be announced is the contempt plea filed by Meenakshi Lekhi against former Congress President Rahul Gandhi. He had said SC also agreed with the "Chowkidaar Chor Hai" analogy.
However, after Lekhi highlighted that the top court never said it, Rahul was reprimanded.
Later, he tendered an unconditional apology and called it "unintentional, non-willful and inadvertent".
