Babri Masjid dispute: SC tells parties to file written submissions, next hearing on April 2

New Delhi, March 23, 2017: The Supreme Court on Thursday asked all the parties to file their respective written submissions in the decades-old Babri masjid demolition case. The bench also said that the matter will be heard after two weeks.

The apex court was examining whether senior BJP leaders LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti along with other leaders may face trial in the decades-old Babri masjid demolition case.

On Wednesday, the apex court adjourned the hearing on the matter till today.

During the last hearing, the apex court said it will not accept the discharge of Advani and others in the Babri Masjid demolition case only on technical grounds and kept the option open on reviving the conspiracy charge against them.

The apex court will hear the Central Bureau of Investigation’s plea against Allahabad High Court’s order dropping criminal conspiracy charges against the BJP leaders in the case.

Earlier, a Raebareli court had acquitted Advani, Joshi and a dozen others including Vinay Katiyar and Kalyan Singh from the conspiracy charges, which were filed the CBI in a supplementary charge sheet.

There are two sets of cases – one against BJP veteran Advani and others who were on the dais at Ram Katha Kunj in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992.

The other case was against lakhs of volunteers who were in and around the disputed structure.
