Lucknow, May 30 (IANS) BJP leaders L.K. Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi and 10 others accused in the Babri Masjid demolition on Tuesday moved the CBI court here seeking their discharge in the case before they were granted bail.

The court, which granted bail on personal bonds of Rs 50,000 each, is now dictating the order on the discharge application, lawyers said.

The court was to frame charges against the accused in the case on Tuesday.
