The Supreme Court is likely to take a final call in the case on March 22, 2017
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti are likely to face conspiracy charges in the Babri Masjid demolition case. In the latest developments of the case, the Supreme Court is likely to take a final call in the case on March 22, 2017 and the BJP leaders may face trials. The apex court is likely to club the two cases that are currently in process in Lucknow and the other one in Rae Bareli. The Supreme Court has expressed concern over delay in trial against people involved in the demolition of Babri and has favoured a joint trial of accused soon. Earlier, a lower court had dropped criminal conspiracy charges against Advani and the other BJP leaders.

We will ask the trial court to conduct a joint trial.” The Allahabad High Court’s ruling to free the senior BJP leaders L.K. Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti and present Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh and others was challenged by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
