Special Advocate Commissioner Vishal Singh on Thursday submitted his report in a Varanasi court regarding the videography-survey of Gyanvapi Mosque complex, which got completed on May 16.
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court had directed the court of Civil Judge (Senior Division) Ravi Kumar Diwakar to abstain from hearing the Gyanvapi Survey case till Friday.
Prior to this, former Advocate General Ajay Kumar Mishra had submitted an initial report of the survey in a Varanasi court on Wednesday.
On May 17, the court removed Commissioner Ajay Kumar Mishra from the survey team with immediate effect after Special Advocate Commissioner of the team Vishal Singh complained that Mishra compromised the probe by lack of secrecy and disinterest.
The court gave the Special Advocate Commissioner time till May 19, to submit the report.
Hearing on the applications of the plaintiff and the one filed by the government counsel was scheduled in the court.
The plaintiff has requested the court for a survey of a basement near ‘wazookhana’. The plaintiff side in its application has pleaded that the shape and size of the Shivling could be ascertained only after entering the basement.
On the other hand, the District Government Counsel in his application pointed out scarcity of water after the wazukhana was sealed. He has pleaded to shift the waterline from the wazookhana, which has been sealed, so that Namazis could do wazoo. Besides, he pointed out that there were fishes in the pond and there is threat to their lives after the wazukhana has been sealed.
A fresh application was also moved by the Hindu side on Wednesday that the report of former Advocate Commissioner Ajay Kumar Mishra should also be taken as the videography on May 6 and May 7 was done under his supervision
