Senior Advocate Abhay Nath Yadav, who was representing the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee in the Gyanvapi case, succumbed to a heart attack on Sunday.
Reports said the lawyer was admitted to a hospital on Maqbool Alam Road in Varanasi on Sunday after experiencing a major heart attack around 10:30 pm on Sunday, as per the information made available by Banaras Bar Association’s Senior Advocate Nityanand Rai.
He was taken to Trimurti Hospital after he got a heart attack and the doctors declared him dead. He was later on taken to Shubham Hospital by his relatives for confirmation, and the doctors here also said he was dead.
On August 4, a reply had to be submitted from the Muslim side in the Shringar Gauri and Gyanvapi cases, in which the role of advocate Abhay Nath Yadav would have been important.
In the Gyanvapi case, the Apex Court will be hearing the matter in October. The Supreme Court bench had said that the matter should be heard in the lower court.
