On Thursday, a local court in Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi on Thursday delivered a big verdict in the case related to the video survey of the Gyanvapi mosque located adjacent to the iconic Kashi Vishwanath temple to Lord Shiva.
In its much-awaited order, the court refused to change the survey commissioner Ajay Mishra and appointed two more lawyers as commissioners who will accompany Mishra for the survey. The Varanasi court also directed the Commission to submit to the court its report by May 17.
1) Videography and survey will continue
2) Anything and everything will be surveyed in Plot No. 9130
3) Ajay Mishra, the current advocate commissioner, will continue, with 2 more assistants
4) From May 13 to May 16, the survey will be held from 9 AM to 1 PM
5) Survey report to be submitted before 17th May
The Gyanvapi mosque is located beside the iconic Kashi Vishwanath Temple, one of 12 Jyotirlingas considered the holiest of Shiva Temples.
The court of Civil Judge (Senior Division) Ravi Kumar Diwakar, which had also heard the matter relating to the opening of the two basements located inside the mosque complex for videography, delivered the verdict after hearing the arguments of both the sides.
The Gyanvapi mosque management committee had filed an application seeking a replacement of court official Ajay Kumar Mishra, who was assigned to do the survey, claiming he was not impartial.
