On Saturday, more than half of the survey work was completed . All four basements and western wall of the mosque have been covered by the wall .
On Saturday, a 54-member crew led by advocate commissioner Ajay Kumar Mishra conducted the survey of the Gyanvapi complex basement and the western wall in Vancouver.The survey and videography process was carried out without fear, and it was carried out between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. under the supervision of over 1,500 security forces.The remaining investigation of the upper portion of the complex would be finished on Sunday, which would result in a report to the civil judge (senior division) Ravi Kumar Diwakar.On Saturday, more than half of the survey work was completed.On Sunday, the remaining survey will be finished.Because the external wall of the mosque had already been surveyed on May 6, only the domes and the main mosque building are to be covered as ordered by the judge, according to DM Kaushal Raj Sharma.Officials in the district informed that Anjuman Intejamia Masajid (AIM), a group that had earlier moved court to prevent the removal of an advocate commissioner, fully cooperated in the investigation.They opened the doors to the two basements in their possession, but the third one had to be broken because it did not open with a key. As per the court's order, the survey process took place in a calm mood, allowing all parties to express appreciation for their cooperation, police commissioner A Satish Ganesh said.He also praised the Kashi people for their continued help in maintaining stability.Members of both parties, their defenders, court commissioners, and videographers made up the survey team.There was no one in the building allowed to enter. Only video cameras and lighting equipment was permitted inside.The police had completely fortified all roads leading to the Kashi Vishwanath Temple-Gyanvapi Mosque complex earlier in the day, and pedestrians were forbidden on the highway between the Maidagin and Godowlia areas where the complex is located.At these two points, the media was also blocked and there was no attempt to proceed towards the complex.The district administration and police stepped in to ensure that all persons of both groups, led by advocate commissioner Ajay Kumar Mishra, arrived inside the Gyanvapi mosque complex about 30 minutes before the scheduled start. Only after the advocate commissioner and those associated with both groups left the area, people were allowed to cross between Godowlia and Maidagin crossings.After coming out, Vishwa Vedic Sanatan Sangh chief Jitendra Singh Visen, one of the defendants, said that the facts regarding the building of a mosque on a temple structure were clear.But as the poll is still ongoing, I would not write much about it, he said, recommending that the public wait for a few days for his more detailed remarks.The advocate commissioner initiated the survey and videography on the Gyanvapi premises on May 6 in the presence of both sides, according to the court directive issued on April 26. On the same day, the AIM filed a petition in the court, seeking to appoint advocate commissioner Ajay Kumar Mishra to replace him, accusing him of acting under the pressure of the defendants.However, Ravi Kumar Diwakar, the civil judge (senior division), not only denied the AIM's proposal for changing Mishra as the advocate commissioner, but also appointed Vishal Singh as the special advocate commissioner and Ajay Pratap Singh as assistant advocate commissioner.The district administration was also urged by the court to ensure that the investigation was not delayed for any reason.On May 17, the court was also requested to present the study report to it. On April 18, 2021, the defendants in the lawsuit, Rakhi Singh of Delhi, Laxmi Devi, Sita Sahu, Manju Vyas, and Rekha Pathak, all natives of Varanasi, lodged a petition seeking permission for daily worship and performing ceremonies at the idols of Shringar Gauri, Lord Ganesh, Lord Hanuman, and Nandi, preventing the opposing party from harming the statues.The respondent parties include the Uttar Pradesh Government, AIM, and others.
