New Delhi: A five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court would hear on February 6 a batch of petitions seeking review of its judgement allowing entry of women of all age groups into Kerala’s Sabarimala temple.

As per a notice uploaded on the apex court’s website, the review petitions would be heard by a constitution bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices R F Nariman, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Indu Malhotra.

On September 28 last year, a five-judge constitution bench, headed by the then Chief Justice Dipak Misra, in a 4:1 verdict had paved the way for entry of women of all ages into the Sabarimala temple, saying the ban amounted to gender discrimination.
