Military officers should be allowed to take decisions in war-like areas, the govt said. “Military solutions are to be provided by military officers, not through comments of politicians. How a situation is to be dealt with when you are in a war-like zone… we should allow our Army officers to take a decision,” defence minister Arun Jaitley said. The remarks are a political message as they come in the context of criticism that the “human shield” episode in J&K was a violation of human rights and that the government was “politicising” the incident.

Lucknow’s CBI court will frame charges against Advani and others in Babri case. The court, which started hearing in the Babri demolition case last week, would frame charges against LK Advani and 11 other BJP and RSS leaders for their alleged role in conspiracy behind the razing of the structure on December 6, 1992. While the CBI court had dropped conspiracy charges against the leaders in 2001, the Allahabad HC had upheld the order in 2010. The CBI, however, moved the SC which in its April 19, 2017 order, asked the CBI court to add conspiracy charges against the accused in the trial.
