Press Trust of India  |  Lucknow 

Special Judge Shashimouli Tiwari had on December 17 issued the non-bailable warrants against the duo for failing to appear before the court, CBI counsel Lalit Kumar Singh said.

The judge has now recalled the warrants and fixed December 24 as the next date for recording evidence of the witnesses in the case.

Singh, the Samajwadi Party MP from Kaiserganj, and Pandey are accused in the Babri demolition case.

Singh was the MP from Gonda constituency at the time of razing down of the medieval monument.

On December 17, the CBI counsel was present along with 90th witness for recording evidence but both Singh and Pandey failed to appear in the court.

The judge had then issued the non-bailable warrants against the two leaders.
