Mosque demolition: Clean-chit for Advani challenged by CBIBy IANS
Friday, February 18, 2011
NEW DELHI - The CBI Friday moved the Supreme Court challenging the Allahabad High Court verdict discharging Bharatiya Janata Party leader L.K. Advani and 20 others of the allegation of demolishing the Babri Masjid in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya Dec 6, 1992.
Advani and 20 others were discharged by the high court May 20, 2010 in a case in which they were accused of conspiracy to demolish the Babri Masjid.
The move by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) assumes significance as it comes on the eve of the budget session of parliament and the government, clouded by various scams, appears to be on the back foot in the wake of the opposition parties’ offensive.
