Rae Bareli, Jun 7 (UNI) Hearing the Babri Masid demolition case, a special court of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) here today deferred the case to June 21 as cross-questioning of a witness remained incomplete.

Wintess Mohammad Aslam was produced before Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Vanshraj and cross-questioned by defence lawyers Haridatt Sharma and Vimal Srivastava.

Recalling the December 6, 1992 demolition, Aslam said he was present on the spot, when the structure was being demolished.

'' There was lot of dust and nothing could be seen...people started running towards safety in the stampede,'' Aslam added.

'Car sevaks took to streets ranting stentorian slogans. Loot incidents also came to fore in the violence, the witness described saying, ''After discovering safe routes, I came to Faizabad along with my family as curfew was imposed in Ayodhya.'' The witness added that he had lodged an FIR of arson and loot incident at the Ram Janmabhoomi police station in Ayodhya. The 'car sevaks' had set afire some properties of my house.

''My father got the compensation as the house was in his name,'' he added.

However, as the cross-questioning was yet to be completed, the court fixed June 21 as the next hearing date into the case.
