New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday expressed concern over the delay in the Babri Masjid case proceedings and called for joint trial of all the accused in the case.
The Supreme Court’s observation today may face trouble for Senior BJP leader LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti. They are likely to face conspiracy charges along with others.
The apex court is likely to club two separates cases going on in Lucknow and Raebareli. The main case against the activists called Karsevaks is pending in the Lucknow trial court.
In 2010, the CBI has challenged the Allahabad High Court’s ruling to acquit Advani, Joshi, Uma Bharti, the then UP Chief Minister and present Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh and others.
The CBI had moved the apex court on February 18, 2011 against the Allahabad High Court verdict.
