Senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi deposed before a special CBI court via video conferencing on Thursday, 23 July, in connection with the probe into the Babri Masjid demolition incident.

Former deputy prime minister LK Advani is likely to record his statement in a similar manner on Friday, 24 July.

On Wednesday, Home Minister Amit Shah reportedly met Advani and talked about various issues including the Babri case and the Ram temple construction, IANS reported.

The report, quoting sources, also said that Shah invited Advani for the 'Bhoomi Pujan' (foundation laying ceremony) to be held on 5 August in Ayodhya for the construction of the Ram temple. Advani had led the Ram temple agitation in the nineties.

MM Joshi and Advani are among the accused facing trial on charges of criminal conspiracy in connection with the demolition of Babri Masjid on 6 December 1992.

The Supreme Court had, on 8 May, asked the special CBI judge in Lucknow to conclude the trial in the Babri Masjid demolition case and pronounce judgment by 31 August.
