By Chennabasaveshwar

The special CBI court on Thursday asked senior BJP leaders LK Advani, Union Minister Uma Bharti and MM Joshi to appear on May 30 in connection with Babri Masjid demolition case.

The BJP leaders had moved court seeking exemption from personally appearing in the court for the hearing of their role in the conspiracy to raze the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992.
