February 29, 2008 17:25 IST
The Liberhan Commission probing the circumstances leading to demolition of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, on Friday got its 44th extension -- for another two months.
The term of the Commission will now end on April 30, an official release said.
The panel headed by Justice M S Liberhan was constituted on December 16, 1992, by an order of the Home Ministry and was expected to submit its report within three months. It has already taken over 15 years and incurred an expenditure of more than Rs seven crore so far.
The Commission was given its 43rd extension on December 31 for two months, but since its task was not yet over, the fresh extension was given on Friday to enable it complete the report.
