Advani refrains from speaking on Babri Masjid case
Somnath (Gujarat) [India], Mar. 8 (ANI): Refraining from speaking on the Supreme Court's suggestion to revive the Babri Masjid case, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) veteran Lal Krishna Advani on Wednesday said that he had no information regarding the same.
"I have not received any information yet. I had read about it in the newspaper," Advani told the media here.
The apex court earlier on Monday expressed its concern over delay in trial against Advani and other BJP leaders Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti in demolition of the Babri Masjid and suggested joint trial of the accused.
Posting the matter for further hearing on March 22, the apex court said that a separate trial going on in Lucknow and Raebareli must be clubbed together.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has challenged the Allahabad High Court's ruling to acquit Advani, Joshi, Bharti, the then Uttar Pradesh chief minister and present Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh besides others.
The apex court had sought response from all the accused during the last hearing.
