Babri Masjid demolition case: All accused acquitted

Ayodhya: In the Babri Masjid demolition case, a special CBI court in Lucknow on Wednesday said the demolition was not pre-planned and ruled out the conspiracy theories in the December 1992 incident in which the Mughal era monument was razed to ground by a mob of 'kar sevaks'.

CBI Judge S.K Yadav while reading the verdict in the Babri Masjid demolition case said there was no conspiracy in the act and acquitted all the 32 accused in the case including BJP leaders L.K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti.

Defence lawyer Manish Tripathi told reporters that the court ordered acquittal on grounds that the evidence against them was insufficient.

“The court said the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad did not have a role in the demolition. It was carried out by mischievous elements,” Tripathi said, giving details of the court verdict. Desk: Asianet Online
