CBI move in Ayodhya case challenged in SC

New Delhi, August 7
An application was filed in the Supreme Court today challenging the CBI decision to drop the conspiracy charge against Deputy Prime Minister L.K. Advani, Union Human Resource Development Minister Murli Manohar Joshi, BJP MP Uma Bharti and five others in the Babri Masjid demolition case.

The application filed by Mohammad Aslam, alias Bhure, is an offshoot of a pending petition by him seeking review of the courtís earlier order transferring the trial of the case from Lucknow to Rae Bareli.

The applicant sought stay of proceedings before the Judicial Magistrate, Rae Bareli, which were initiated on the basis of the impugned judgement dated November 29, 2002.

The applicant also sought a stay on the operation of the impugned judgement and requested listing for hearing the review petition at the earliest so as to end the controversy over the trial of the case pertaining to the demolition of the disputed structure. The application sought action against the CBI.

LUCKNOW: The Sunni Central Waqf Board (SCWB) and Nirmohi Akhara on Thursday filed applications before a special Lucknow full bench of the Allahabad High Court hearing Ayodhya title suits, seeking to preserve the excavated trenches in Ayodhya. ó UNI
