India ruling party leaders face trial over 1992 mosque attack

"Every judgment delivered by the Supreme Court has two components - the law declared which binds courts in future litigation between persons, and the doing of complete justice in any cause or matter which is pending before it", it said.

However, Kalyan Singh will enjoy constitutional immunity as long as he serves as the Rajasthan state governor, the court ruled, according to the Times of India. He was chief minister of Uttar Pradesh when the mosque was demolished.

The proceedings against 21 accused, including the ones named above, were dropped by the Lucknow court on May 4, 2001. Restoring the conspiracy charge, Justice Ghose and Justice Nariman transferred the trial from Rae Bareli to Lucknow.

The highest court of the country also ordered that no adjournment would be given under normal circumstances and no judge, hearing the case, would be transferred. They were of the view that joint trial would lead to the beginning of de novo (afresh) proceedings.

It permitted the parties before the trial court to approach the top court in the event of any of its "direction not being carried out, both in letter and in spirit".

There are two set of cases related to Babri Masjid demolition. On the other side, the cases related to the BJP leaders like LK Advani, MM Joshi and Uma Bharti which are taking place in Raebareli court.

Because the cases are two different sets.

The apex court, which dubbed the demolition of the medieval-era monument as a “crime” which shook the “secular fabric of Constitution, ” allowed the CBIs plea on restoration of criminal conspiracy charges against the VVIP accused, which will have its political implications, particularly against Advani, a frontrunner for the post of the President.

After the court vedict, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting at his official residence with senior cabinet colleagues including Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Information and Broadcasting Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu and Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari where they are understood to have discussed the issue.

Earlier this year, the Rae Bareilly case was clubbed together with the Lucknow case, which pertains to the actual demolition of the mosque and ensuing violence.

When UPA was in power, CBI declined the dropping of charges against the leaders, even when L K Advani was the Deputy Prime Minister.

The eight leaders are now being tried at Rae Bareilly for various offences under Sections 147, 153A r/w 149 and 153B of IPC.

"What they (Supreme Court) have said today means there's clinching evidence that needs to be now argued out in the court", said party spokesman Sanjay Jha. "Why should leaders like Uma Bharti resign from Union Minister position, these all are baseless charges", BJP spokesman GVL Narasimha Rao told a news channel.

Others who will face criminal conspiracy charges are Vinay Katiyar, Sadhvi Ritambara, Satish Pradhan, Champat Rai Bansal.

It had subsequently invoked charges under section 120B (criminal conspiracy) of IPC which was quashed by the special court whose decision was upheld by the high court.
