Though Mr Narayanan recorded his statement way back, the cross examination by the counsel of the opposite side was completed on Friday.

A total of 48 FIRs were registered in connection with the demolition in which CB-CID investigated the matter and then it was handed over to the CBI. Later on May 31,2017 , CBI filed charge sheet against 49 accused, of whom 17 died pending trial.
