We are happy with SC order. Hope justice will now be done in the crime of demolition. Inclusion of section 120 B IPC makes the case more stronge. Now the accused will also be tried for the actual demolition. Most of the witnesses have recorded their statement, now the trial will gain pace. We hope that the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh plays no obstacle in the trial and co-operates with CBI in ensuring the witnesses are produced in time: Zafaryab Jilani
