The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Friday refused to comment on L.K. Advani's former personal security officer telling a Rae Bareli court that the BJP leader “looked euphoric” before the Babri Masjid was razed, saying that the demolition case was "subjudice".
"The BJP won't comment on that,” BJP spokesperson Ramnath Kovind told reporters here when asked about the party's reaction to the statement by Advani's former personal security officer Anju Gupta in a special court in Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh Friday.
Anju Gupta Friday morning testified before a court saying that Advani "looked euphoric" on Dec 6, 1992, shortly before the demolition of the Babri Masjid.
Gupta, who was then posted as assistant superintendent of police (ASP) in the temple town of Ayodhya, was deposing before a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court.
"Advani not only looked euphoric but also declared before the huge crowds at Ayodhya on Dec 6, 1992, that the Ram temple would be built at the disputed site in the temple town," she said.
Advani, Gupta said, "gave quite a provocative speech for which he was applauded by his other party colleagues and the crowds".
