Liberhan panel gets 48th extension

New Delhi, March 31
The term of Liberhan Commission, probing the demolition of disputed structure in Ayodhya, has been extended for the 48th time today for three more months.

The Home Ministry issued a notification extending till June 30 the term of the one-man inquiry commission constituted by then Prime Minister PV Narsimha Rao to probe into the demolition of the disputed structure on December 6, 1992.

The country’s longest-serving commission of inquiry has already got 47 extensions since it was set up within 10 days of the demolition of the 16th century mosque which triggered widespread communal violence.

The Commission headed by Justice MS Liberhan was to submit its report by March 16, 1993. The probe panel has become one of the longest and costliest commissions with nearly Rs 8 crore already spent during this period. — UNI
