The serious charge of criminal conspiracy was restored against Advani, Joshi and others by the Supreme Court of India.
Apex court also directed that the trial be concluded in two year.

The Supreme Court had called the destruction of the mosque a "crime" which shook the "secular fabric of the Constitution" while allowing the CBI's plea seeking restoration of the criminal conspiracy charge against Advani and the others.

A CBI court dropped charges of criminal conspiracy against Advani and long-time comrade Joshi on technical grounds 16 years ago. The Supreme Court revived the case this April, saying the demolition shook “the fabric of the Constitution”.

As L K Advani, Joshi and Bharti failed to turn up in court on May 25 and 26, the special court had said that no further application for an adjournment or exemption from personal appearance would be entertained. The court had on May 26 fixed the hearing for Tuesday.

BJP leader’s L K Advani (89), M M Joshi (83), Uma Bharti (58), BJP MP Vinay Katiyar (62), VHP's Vishnu Hari Dalmiya (89) and Sadhvi Rithambara (53) were on Tuesday charged with criminal conspiracy in the 1992 Babri mosque demolition case by a special CBI court.

The judge framed charges against them under Section 120(b) of the Indian Penal Code

According to media reports they have been charged under IPC Section 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy) to be read with Section 153 (inciting a mob with an intent to cause riots), Section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion and disrupting communal harmony), Section 295 (defiling a place of worship with an intent to insult the religion), Section 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any community) and Section 505 (provocative statements causing public mischief).

All six were granted bail by CBI special judge S K Yadav on a personal bond of Rs 50,000 each
They appeared in a special CBI court in Lucknow, pleaded not guilty and were granted bail.

The conspiracy charges have been framed against Ramvilas Vedanti, Baikunth Lal Sharma, Champat Rai Bansal, Mahant Nritya Gopaldas, Dharam Das and Satish Pradhan -- all of whom were allegedly present when the 16th-century masjid was demolished

The charge of conspiracy is in addition to the existing charges against them for promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion.

Congress party demanded Uma Bharti’s removal from the ministry after the court order.
“She must step down. We hope the Prime Minister will ask her to step down,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.
