Supreme Court issues notice to Advani, others in Babri demolition case

A bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu issued notices to the BJP leader and the CBI on a separate plea filed by Haji Mahboob Ahmad, one of the petitioners in the Babri mosque case.

Ahmad, in his plea, has alleged that CBI may dilute its stand in the wake of the change in the government at the Centre.

Earlier, the CBI had moved the Apex Court against Allahabad High Court's verdict on dropping conspiracy charge against Advani and 19 others in Babri mosque demolition case.
  
During the brief hearing, CBI on Tuesday sought time for filing a fresh affidavit on delay in filing the appeal and on the merits of the case.
