THE COUNSELS FOR ALL the 12 accused persons, earlier in the day, had filed a discharge petition, seeking that the charges against their clients be discharged.
RAJASTHAN GOVERNOR Kalyan Singh, who was the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh when the structure was razed, has been exempted since he enjoys immunity under the Constitution as long as he held the gubernatorial office, said the special CBI court on Tuesday.
THE COURT REJECTED THIS after which all the accused leaders reached the special CBI court. The counsel for the accused then filed a bail petition which was accepted through a single order.
SENIOR LEADER MR ADVANI and Dr Joshi did not comment on the day’s development and their security personnel kept the media at bay. The court has not passed any order insisting on personal appearances by the accused which implies that the case will proceed through their counsels.
