SC directs CBI to expedite trial in Babri demolition case
The Supreme Court today directed Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI) to expedite the trial in Babri Masjid demolition case against senior BJP leader L K Advani and others.
The apex court dropped the proceedings against late Shiv Sena Supremo Bal Thackeray since he has expired.
Other accused include BJP MP Vinay Katiyar, Murli Manohar Joshi, Sadhvi Ritambra, Vishwa Hindu Parishad(VHP) leader Ashok Singhal, Giriraj Kishore, and Praveen Togadia.
Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was demolished by Karsevaks 20 years ago on December 6, 1992.
