Lalkrishna AdwaniLucknow  : A special court in Lucknow delivered the much-awaited judgment on Wednesday in the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case. All the 32 accused, including BJP veterans L.K. Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, have been acquitted.

All of them, including eight BJP leaders, have been acquitted due to lack of evidence.

The over 2,000 page verdict rules that the razing down of Babri Masjid was not a pre-planned event. – Omar Rashid
