Rajeev Dhavan sacked from Babri case: Senior Supreme Court advocate Rajeev Dhavan on Tuesday said he has been ‘sacked’ from Babri case and that he accepts the decision ‘without demur’. Dhavan, who represented the Sunni Waqf Board and other Muslim parties in the Ayodhya Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute, however, slammed the reason being floated for his removal.
“Just been sacked from the Babri case by AOR Ejaz Maqbool who was representing the Jamiat. Have sent formal letter accepting the ‘sacking’ without demur. No longer involved in the review or the case,” Dhavan said in a Facebook post.
“I have been informed that Mr Madani has indicated that I was removed from the case because I was unwell. This is total nonsense. He has a right to instruct his lawyer AOR Ejaz Maqbool to sack me which he did on instructions. But the reason being floated is malicious and untrue,” he added.
