Amid tight security in the ICMRT building in Indiranagar, where the court proceedings are taking place, former MP Ram Vilas Vedanti, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leaders Champat Rai, Baikunth Lal Sharma, Mahant Nritya Gopal Das and Dharmdas Maharaj reached there to surrender.
The court had issued summons to them.
Satish Pradhan of the Shiv Sena however did not appear and is likely to surrender next week. His counsel Manish Tripathi said he was not keeping well. Tripathi also moved a bail application on which the court will take a call late in the evening.
The apex court had also said that the trial judge will not be transferred during this period and the court will take forward criminal charges against the 13 accused which include veteran Bharatiya Janata Party leaders Lal Krishna Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Union Minister Uma Bharti.
