All 32 accused in Babri Masjid demolition case have been acquitted by the Special CBI Court in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. The accused involve high profile names including L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharati among others. 

The Special CBI Court also observed that the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition was not pre-planned.


On December 6, 1992, the Babri Masjid demolition took place in Ayodhya. As per allegations, thi

s happened after a rally of 150,000 karsevaks was taken out. Two FIRs were lodged, FIR 197, and FIR 198. FIR 197 was lodged against Karsevaks for the demolition of the Babri Masjid and FIR 198 was lodged against leaders like Advani, MM Joshi, Uma Bharti for instigating.

On October 5, 1993, CBI charge-sheeted 48 persons in all, including the names of Balasaheb Thackeray, Kalyan Singh, BJP leader Ram Bilas Vadanti, former VHP General Secretary Ashok Singhal, BJP MP Brij Bhushan Saran Singh, and others.

A subsequent inquiry into the incident by the Liberhan Commission led by Justice M S Liberhan submitted its findings to the government after an inquiry of nearly 17 years. It found 68 people responsible for the demolition.

On May 20, 2010, Advani and others were absolved of conspiracy charges after the Allahabad HC upheld May 4, 2001 special court order and dismissed the CBI’s revision petition for a direction to proceed with the conspiracy charge against Advani and others.

On February 2011 the CBI moved to Supreme Court and the Supreme Court stayed Allahabad High Court’s verdict.

The Supreme Court on April 19, 2017 revived conspiracy charges against Advani, Joshi, and 13 others in the 25-year-old Babri Masjid demolition cases.
