Babri Masjid demolition case
Advani, Joshi, Uma to stand trial
P L Uniyal
NEW DELHI, Apr 19: BJP leaders L K Advani, M M Joshi and Uma Bharti will face trial in the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case as the Supreme Court today allowed the CBI plea and restored criminal conspiracy charges against them.

The court also clubbed the trial in the matter pending against the leaders and 'karsevaks' and said the proceedings should be completed in two years.

“We have allowed the CBI appeal against the Allahabad High Court judgement with certain directions,” a bench comprising Justices P C Ghose and R F Nariman said. The apex court, however, noted that Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh enjoys Constitutional immunity and can be tried only after he ceases to hold the office.

Kalyan Singh was the Chief Minister of UP in 1992. The court also gave significant directions including that separate trials being conducted in trial courts at Raebareli and Lucknow would be clubbed and conducted in the capital of Uttar Pradesh only. It also said that the trial judge of Lucknow “shall not be transferred” till conclusion and delivery of judgement in the sensational case. The court further said that no party would be granted adjournment, without the Sessions judge being satisfied of the reasons for it and conduct day-to-day trial which should be concluded within two years. It also directed probe agency CBI to ensure that prosecution witnesses appear on each and every date for recording of evidence in the case and the trial court should start the proceedings within four weeks from today.

It, however, clarified that there would be no de novo (fresh) trial in the matter. The bench also directed that its order should be followed in letter and spirit and granted liberty to the parties to approach it if its directions were not followed.

There were two sets of cases relating to the demolition of the disputed structure on December 6, 1992. The first involved unnamed 'karsevaks', the trial of which is taking place in a Lucknow court, while the second set of cases relate to the leaders in a Raebareli court.
