Senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan representing the Muslim parties in the Supreme Court in the Ram Janmabhoomi – Babri Masjid case had a complete meltdown as Senior advocate Vikas Singh sought to place on record the book ‘Ayodhya Revisited’ by former IPS Kishore Kunal. Senior advocate Singh is representing the Hindu Mahasabha and the book ‘Ayodhya Revisited’ talks about pre-existence of Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
CJI takes exception to loud arguments by Dhavan & others, says the judges will get up & go if proceedings go on like this. He also mentions these shouting matches are wasting the time & that the judges could go through the papers instead of hearing the lawyers. Singh placates CJI

In a complete meltdown, Dhavan then started tearing off papers and maps handed over to him by the Hindu Mahasabha as he strongly opposed the party in the Supreme Court.
The CJI then asked him to shred them further and Dhavan tore off more pages.
Today is the last day of arguments and CJI Ranjan Gogoi has announced that the bench will wrap up the hearing by 5 PM.
