Varanasi: The special commission appointed by the court to survey the Gyanvapi Mosque on Tuesday sought a two-day time to submit the final survey report on Tuesday.

The Assistant Court Commissioner Ajay Pratap Singh said that a petition has been filed seeking a two-day time to file the Commission report.

Earlier in the day, he confirmed that “The survey lasted for three days from May 14-16. Only 50 percent of the report is ready, not complete yet. This is why we will not be able to produce it before the court today. We will seek 3-4 days from the court.”

Special Commissioner Advocate Vishal Singh, has also sought a minimum of two days to prepare the report. Earlier he claimed that the report will be submitted to the Court on time.

As the two-day survey was concluded on Monday, one of the petitioners claimed that the committee found a Shivling at the complex. The petitioner also claimed that the committee has ‘conclusive evidence’.

The Supreme Court bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud will hear the plea of the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee on Tuesday. The survey was conducted in accordance with the Varanasi Civil Court’s order to continue the survey despite objections from the mosque authorities.

Vishnu Gupta, President of the Hindu Sena filed an intervention application seeking directions for dismissal of the petition filed by Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Management Committee.
