Akhbar mein kahin padha tha, Advani’s ‘casual’ remark on Babri Masjid case


New Delhi, March 8: As the 25-year-old Babri Masjid demolition case once again haunts veteran Bharatiya Janata Party leader LK Advani, the former deputy prime minister decided to 'casually' react to the latest statement made by the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

"I have not received any information yet. Akhbar mein kahin padha tha maine (I have read somewhere in the newspaper)," ANI quoted Advani as saying.

Advani’s reacts on Babri Masjid case

The apex court on Monday said that conspiracy charges against Advani and others in the decades-old Babri mosque demolition case may be revived. The SC said it will not accept the discharge of Advani and others in the case only on technical grounds and kept the option open on reviving the conspiracy charge against them.

The SC was hearing an appeal filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation, challenging the May 2010 Allahabad high court decision. The apex court while making oral observations on discharge of Advani and other also came up with the option of ordering a joint trial of cases arising out of the two FIRs lodged in the wake of the demolition of the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri structure in Ayodhya in 1992.

The high court had acquitted Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti and then Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh of the charge of criminal conspiracy in the demolition of the Babri Masjid. A bench of Justices PS Ghosh and RF Nariman has posted the matter for further hearing on March 22.
