BJP leader and Union minister RS Prasad goes to LK Advani’s residence soon after the judgement.
Advani, who is 92 years old, and 86-year-old Joshi are exempt due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Singh is recovering from the infection.
The court will decide on two FIRs – 197/1992 and 198/1992, Bar and Bench report. The first FIR was against some unnamed karsevaks for demolishing the structure. The second FIR was against eight BJP leaders who allegedly initiated the demolition.
The court says the people who demolished the Babri mosque were “anti-national elements” and the accused people were trying to control the crowds.
The leaders who were at the site of the demolition were trying to stop the mob, the judgement says, according to News 18. The judge adds that stone-pelting started from behind the structure.
