Advani refrains from speaking on Babri Masjid case

ANI  |  Somnath (Gujarat) [India] 

Refraining from speaking on the Supreme Court's suggestion to revive the Babri Masjid case, (BJP) veteran Lal Krishna Advani on Wednesday said that he had no information regarding the same.

"I have not received any information yet. I had read about it in the newspaper," Advani told the media here.

The apex earlier on Monday expressed its concern over delay in trial against Advani and other leaders Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti in demolition of the Babri Masjid and suggested joint trial of the accused.

Posting the matter for further hearing on March 22, the apex said that a separate trial going on in Lucknow and Raebareli must be clubbed together.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has challenged the Allahabad High Court's ruling to acquit Advani, Joshi, Bharti, the then Uttar Pradesh chief minister and present Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh besides others.

The apex had sought response from all the accused during the last hearing.

Babri Masjid was demolished by a mob on December 6, 1992.
