Supreme Court rejects plea for extension of security to Babri Masjid demolition Special judge

The Supreme Court denied extending the personal security of special judge S.K.Yadav, who retired after delivering the verdict in the Babri Maajid case.
A three judge bench of justices Rohinton Nariman, Navin Sinha and Krishna Murari said that there is no situation warranting the continuation of security for Yadav. The bench headed by justice Nariman, after a brief hearing in the matter, said : “We do not consider it necessary to continue the security for him.”
Yadav has asked for continuing his personal security in view of the sensitivity of his last case. He had written a letter urging the top court to continue his personal security. The bench said after going through the letter, it does not see the merit in extending his security.
A special CBI court hearing the Babri mosque demolition case of December 6, 1992, acquitted all the 32 accused saying it was spontaneous and not a planned move. Yadav, held that CBI had failed to produce any evidence of conspiracy by the accused.
The trial was conducted for the alleged commission of offences under Section 147, 153-A, 505, 149 IPC.
