Babri case: IPS officer to testify against Advani
New Delhi, Mar 26: Anju Gupta, the IPS officer who present at the scene of the Babri Masjid's demolition in 1992, will take the witness stand against senior BJP leader LK Advani in a Rae Bareilly court on Friday, Mar 26.

Gupta, currently posted in RAW in Delhi, would be the ninth witness to depose before the special court in connection with the case

Gupta was posted as assistant superintendent of police (ASP) at the time of the demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.

She had first shot to fame when she said in a statement before CBI investigators that top BJP leaders Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti were euphoric after the demolition.

The special court is holding trial of Advani and eight others in the case.

The 16th century mosque, built by Mughal emperor Babur, was razed Dec 6, 1992, by mobs of karsewaks who claimed the mosque was erected at the site of an ancient temple that marked the birthplace of Lord Ram.
