NEW DELHI - A senior Indian Police Service officer, who was responsible for the security of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Deputy Prime Minister Lal Krishna Advani during demolition of the Babri Masjid (mosque) in Ayodhya in 1992, told a special court on Friday that Faizabad police had intelligence inputs that an attempt could be made to harm the structure on Dec 6, 1992, reports The Statesman. In the riots that erupted following the demolition of the mosque, more than 2,000 people were killed across India. The right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party is currently in the Opposition. During the cross-examination by the defence in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Gulab Singh, Ms Anju Gupta, said she had attended a review meeting convened by Inspector General of Police, Faizabad, AK Saran on 5 December, the day before the structure was demolished. During her deposition before the court on March 26, Gupta had stated that Advani had given a provocative speech in Ayodhya moments before the mosque was demolished by right-wing Sangh Parivar activists. On December 6, 1992, Advani made a spirited speech from Ram Katha Kunj manch (dais), barely 150-200 metres from the site, which charged up the people. He repeatedly said that the temple would be constructed at the same site, Gupta told the court. Gupta, currently working with RAW in Delhi was posted as ASP in Faizabad in Dec 1992. She is appearing as a prosecution witness at a Special CBI Court, which is trying Advani, BJP leader Murli Joshi, former BJP leader Uma Bharti and other Sangh Parivar leaders for inciting violence that led to the demolition of Babri Masjid.
