Mangaluru: The judgment in the politically sensitive Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case, will be pronounced today by a five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi. Justice S A Nazeer, an alumnus of SDM Law college is one among the 5-judges who will be pronouncing the verdict in the Ayodhya case. Born in Moodbidri, Justice SA Nazeer practiced in the Karnataka High Court for 20 years after he enrolled as an advocate in February 1983. He was appointed as an Additional Judge of the Karnataka High Court in 2003 and as a permanent judge in 2004. In February 2017, while serving as a judge of the Karnataka High Court, Nazeer was elevated to the Supreme Court of India. He became only the third judge ever to be elevated in this way, without first becoming the chief justice of some high court. Justice Nazeer has patiently heard the counsels in the Ayodhya title dispute.
