BJP pulls up CBI for seeking trial against Advani in Babri demolition case

   May 8, 5:42 pm

New Delhi, May 8 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday hit out at the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for reiterating its demand to reopen the case against former party president Lal Krishna Advani over his involvement in the demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.

"What the CBI has disclosed yesterday and day before is nothing but the rejoinder to the counter affidavit filed Mr. Advani and others questioning the entire motive. This selective leak of CBI's stand in the pending procedure before the Supreme Court is deeply deplorable," said Prasad.

"The CBI is working through an agenda as the front of the Congress party, when the parliament is in session it is deliberately playing the political games of the Congress party, when the people of the country are appreciating, in spite knowing fully that thrice the Supreme Court has turned down the plea," he added.

The CBI has appealed in the Supreme Court that Advani along with other leaders should face trial in the demolition case.

The agency opposed the separation of trial of eight accused leaders-Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti, Vinay Katiyar, Ashok Singhal, Giriraj Kishore, Vishnu Hari Dalmiya and Sadhvi Rithambara-from 41 others, mainly kar sevaks, allegedly involved in the demolition of the disputed structure on December 6, 1992.

It said separation of the trial, which has found favour with the trial court and the Allahabad High Court, is totally erroneous.

CBI has challenged the May 20, 2010, order of the High Court dismissing its plea against dropping of the conspiracy charge against Advani and also upholding separation of his trial from those charged with actual demolition and assault on mediapersons.

Two separate FIRs were registered on the December 6, 1992 incident with the first pointing towards the alleged involvement of kar sevaks in the demolition of the structure while another was against eight leaders of BJP, VHP and RSS for giving allegedly provocative speeches and slogans from a stage 175 meters away from the disputed site.
