NEW DELHI. Nov. 24. The Communist Party of India (Marxist), has taken exception to the reported remarks of the Director CBI on the Babri Masjid demolition case being heard by the Rae Bareli court. The CBI Director, P.C. Sharma, had reportedly stated that the original chargesheet before the court on the case did not contain the criminal conspiracy charge.
In a statement issued today, the CPI (M) politburo said, " it is both strange and improper for the CBI Director," to comment on a case which is pending before the courts. Accusing the CBI of attempting to shirk its responsibility by taking refuge behind technicalities, the CPI (M) said " the simple fact is that in 1993, it had filed a chargesheet of criminal conspiracy to demolish the Babri Masjid and now in 2003, the CBI has dropped these charges".
The politburo said the Court had charged the accused under different sections including criminal conspiracy and sent the case for trial. " This chargesheet, when challenged in the High Court, was struck down on purely technical grounds due to a lapse on the part of the State Government." The BJP-led Government refused to make the necessary correction, the Mayawati Government did not issue a fresh notification, and the present Mulayam Singh Yadav-led Government has "conveniently left the matter to the Supreme Court," the statement said.
