The CBI on Friday appealed in Supreme court, against the Allahabad High Court’s order to drop charges against senior BJP leader L K Advani & Murli Manohar Joshi in the Babri Masjid demoliton case.The high court had quashed the criminal conspiracy case against Advani and 20 others.

In its appeal, the agency said that the High Court had not come to the right conclusion and the charges of criminal conspiracy should be restored against them.

The other leaders were former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Uma Bharti and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh, besides Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray.

After the demolition of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992 two FIRs were filed against those allegedly involved in it.

The first FIR was against unknown persons while the second FIR was filed against Advani and 20 others.
