"I had seen Advani and Joshi controlling the crowd, pacifying them and trying to prevent them from going ahead but no one was in a mood to listen to them and the things happened due to the mob fury," Pradhan, said recollecting the events on 6 December, 1992.

Pradhan and BJP leader Om Prakash Sharma were the only two leaders from Thane who had gone to Ayodhya in 1992. Sharma and Pradhan will be tried along with Advani, Joshi, Uma Bharti and other senior BJP leaders in the case as per the recent Supreme Court order.
