New Delhi, March 22, 2017: The Supreme Court of India on Wednesday adjourned the hearing of the conspiracy charges against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti matter till March 23.
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.
