Rae Bareli: Hearing in the Babri mosque
demolition case was on Tuesday deferred as the notification for
nomination of a judge is still to be issued by the Allahabad
High Court.

"The matter was not taken up today as a notification
regarding nomination of magistrate is yet to be issued by the
High Court," prosecution sources said.

The next hearing would take place on October 26,
they said.

The special CBI court hearing Babri demolition case is
lying vacant after transfer of Chief Judicial Magistrate Gulab

said.
