The five-member constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India, Rangan Gogoi has referred the Sabarimala case to a seven-judge bench on a basis of 3:2 split verdict.
Supreme Court mentioned that the entry of Muslim women in Mosque, Parsi women case and Dawoodi Bohra case are very similar in terms of the issues to the Sabarimala case.
The top court has dismissed the review petitions against the verdict in the Rafale deal and restated clean chit to Narendra Modi government in the fighter jet agreement. The Supreme Court said that the review petitions lacked merit.
Supreme Court has also rejected the plea which states that an FIR should be registered on this Rs 58,000 crore deal. The review petition pursued a re-examination of the verdict given by the Supreme Court on December 14, 2018, which states that there is no doubt in the decision-making process in the attainment of 36 Rafale fighter jets.
"We find the review petitions are without any merit," said the bench.
