Special CBI court in Lucknow acquitted all 32 accused in the Babri Masjid demolition case
A day after a special CBI court in Lucknow acquitted all 32 accused in the Babri Masjid demolition case, including former deputy prime minister L.K. Advani, former Union ministers Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh, newspaper editorials expressed concern over the judgement and pushed the CBI to challenge the verdict.
On Wednesday, the special court judge said that the demolition was not pre-planned and that the accused were “trying to stop the mob and not incite them”. He added that there was not enough evidence against the accused and that the court could not probe the authenticity of the audio and video evidence provided by the CBI.
