Rajeev Dhavan sacked from Babri case

Senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, who represented the Muslim parties in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute in the Supreme Court, on Tuesday said he has been sacked from the case. Dhavan made this announcement in a Facebook post published early Tuesday morning.

He wrote: 'Just been sacked from the Babri case by advocate-on-record Ejaz Maqbool, who was representing the Jamiat. Have sent a formal letter accepting the sacking without demur. No longer involved in the review of the case.'

Dhavan had vehemently argued the case for the Muslim side before a five-judge bench headed by then Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi. He had argued for more than two weeks in the 40 day hearing of the matter.
