Babri case: Advani, MM Joshi, Bharti summoned to CBI courtMay 25, 2017 08:13
A special Central Bureau of Investigation court hearing the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition cases has asked Bharatiya Janata Party leaders L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti to appear before it on Friday.
The court is likely to frame additional charges against Advani and other accused after the Supreme Court ordered restoring of the serious criminal conspiracy offence against them.
The apex court had on April 19 directed that Advani, Bharti and Joshi will face trial on conspiracy charges. It had transferred their case from Raebareli to Lucknow.
It directed the special court to start proceedings in the matter within a month and deliver its verdict within two years.
The apex court had dubbed the demolition of the medieval era monument as a crime which shook the secular fabric of the Constitution and allowed the CBIs plea on restoration of serious offence of criminal conspiracy against the VVIP accused.
