New Delhi :”Get lost!” This was retired Supreme Court judge M.S. Liberhan’s outburst when confronted by journalists over his leaked report into the Babri mosque razing published Monday.
Ambushed while taking a walk, Liberhan became angry when a journalist asked him if he had perhaps leaked the report to the Indian Express daily that published a condensed version of his findings into the 1992 mosque demolition.
“I am not such a characterless person!” Liberhan shouted back, and began walking away. He went to say that he was “very sad” at the way the media was treating him.
The Liberhan Commission of Inquiry was set to enquire into the sequence of events leading to the Dec 6, 1992 mosque razing in Ayodhya that sparked terrible Hindu-Muslim violence.
