Liberhan panel completes inspection at Ayodhya

Ayodhya, June 29
After conducting a comprehensive inspection of the disputed site here, the Liberhan Commission today left for New Delhi.

The commission, probing the demolition of the disputed structure here, has for the first time conducted a two-day inspection of the site.

Sources here said commission Chairman M.S. Liberhan, registrar A.L. Verma, counsel Anupama Gupta, secretary N.K. Sood and Pankaj Dayal visited the disputed site for the second day amid tight security and conducted a close inspection of various places inside the disputed premises.

The commission kept all vital points in consideration while inspecting the site like the area surrounding the disputed site, platforms where BJP and VHP leaders had delivered speeches, the security wall around the, then, disputed structure, several paths leading to the structure and places where the kar-sewaks were lodged.

The commission also collected information about ‘Sita Rasoi’, adjacent to the disputed site and inspected the land between the ‘Rangmahal’ barrier and the VHP office, which presently serves as the Ram Janma-bhoomi Nyas office.

The commission conducted a thorough inspection of the disputed site with maps of the area and visited ‘Dohari Kuan’, Gurdwara, Brahmakund and Manas Bhavan, where the kar sewaks had allegedly assaulted mediapersons.

The members later visited the Saryu bridge, Janki Mahal Trust and also saw the Ram temple model at the kar sewak puram. Earlier, the commission secretary had visited the site three years ago and collected information regarding the demolition of the Babri Masjid. — UNI
