Rath Yatra: Supreme Court to hear on Monday

New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear on Monday four petitions seeking modification of its earlier order of June 18, which had stayed holding of Rath Yatra in Puri and other places in Odisha in view the COVID-19 situation.

The Supreme Court’s single-judge bench comprising Justice S Ravindra Bhat will hear the matter on Monday.

A three-judge bench of the court headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sharad Arvind Bobde had stayed holding of annual Rath Yatra across Odisha.

However, several petitions have been filed in the court seeking modification of the order and allow to organise Rath Yatra 2020 in Puri only.
