A division bench of the country's apex court comprising Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice RF Nariman completed hearing of the case and reserved the ruling.

The bench is hearing the petition on the time for publication of the much-awaited NRC draft along with border fencing issue on November 29 and 30.
