Gyanvapi domes, namaz area covered under survey

Varanasi: Third-day survey of Gyanvapi mosque by a team led by advocate commissioner Ajay Kumar Mishra concluded peacefully after covering all three domes and the main mosque area, where namaz is performed, on Sunday.
Despite extending survey hours, the advocate commissioner found the work incomplete. He informed the district administration that the survey will continue on Monday morning. In a petition filed by Rakhi Singh of Delhi and Laxmi Devi, Sita  Sahu, Manju Vyas, and Rekha Pathak, all natives of Varanasi, on April 18, 2021, to seek permission for daily worship and performing rituals at the idols of Shringar Gauri in Gyanvapi and stopping the opponents from causing any damage to the statues, civil judge (senior division) Ravi Kumar Diwakar had ordered the survey of Gyanvapi premises by appointing advocate commissioner Ajay Kumar Mishra.
Mishra started the survey on May 6 and covered the exterior of the mosque. After that, the survey was stalled as Anjuman Intezamia Masjid (AIM), filed an objection before the court claiming that the advocate commissioner appointed by the court for the survey, did not have the mandate to film inside the premises. AIM demanded changing Mishra as advocate commissioner. 
However, the court on May 12 rejected the request of the AIM and appointed a special advocate commissioner and an assistant advocate commissioner to assist Mishra. The court also strictly directed the district administration to ensure that the survey was not delayed for any reason and its report is submitted by May 17. District magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma told that the survey team covered domes, the main mosque area, where namaz is performed, and its walls on the Gyanvapi mosque campus. The scheduled hours for the survey were between 8 am and noon. The survey team tried its best to complete the work by extending the time, but all their tasks could not be completed. Officials said, the survey team needs detailing of already surveyed areas, including the basement in possession of the Vyas family, while the area of the pond for wuzu (purification ritual) and some other parts will be surveyed on Monday. The DM said that all team members were asked to be present at Gyanvapi on Monday morning to ensure the completion of the survey by the advocate commissioner as its report has to be submitted before the court on Tuesday.
Earlier, the survey team of over 50 persons, including Mishra, the special and assistant advocate commissioners, both parties, their lawyers, and videographers entered the Gyanvapi premises at 8 am.
