NEW DELHI, April 6 - The Supreme Court today reserved its order on a petition seeking restoration of conspiracy charges against senior BJP leaders LK Advani, MM Joshi and Uma Bharti in the Babri Masjid demolition case. The apex court will also decide whether the trial of the VVIPs accused can be transferred from a court in Rae Bareli to Lucknow.
There were two sets of cases relating the demolition of the disputed structure on December 6, 1992. The first involved unnamed �karsevaks�, the trial in which is taking place in a Lucknow court, while the second set of cases relates to the VVIPs in a Rae Bareli court.
A bench comprising Justices PC Ghose and RF Nariman also indicated they may order holding of joint trial of the two sets of cases by transferring the trial from Rae Bareli to a Lucknow court. The bench also said since 25 years have already passed, in the interest of justice it will consider ordering a timebound trial on day-to-day basis, to be completed preferably within two years. � PTI
