The Supreme Court on Monday refused to extend security to former CBI judge Surendra Kumar Yadav, who had delivered the acquittal verdict in the criminal case against 32 persons for conspiracy behind the demolition of Babri Masjid.

 "Having perused the letter dated September 30, we do not consider it necessary to continue (the) security", observed a bench headed by Justice R F Nariman rejecting the application filed by the ex-judge seeking extension of security cover.

In the verdict delivered on September 30, judge Yadav, who was then the presiding officer of Special CBI Court, Lucknow, had acquitted all 32 accused in the 28-year old case, including BJP's founder-members LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi.

He was due to retire in September 2019 but was given term extension by the Supreme Court to complete the trial in the case. 

Judge S K Yadav, in his 2000-page verdict, held that the demolition of the mosque was not premeditated and that there was no criminal conspiracy behind it.

"Those who climbed on the dome, they are anti-social elements", the Court stated.

The authenticity of the audio and video clips produced by the CBI is not proved, the court held.
