Hours after the court-ordered videographic survey of the Kashi Vishwanath temple-Gyanvapi mosque complex in Varanasi ended Monday, a Varanasi court asked the Uttar Pradesh government to immediately seal the place where a purported ‘shivling’ has been found, according to Live Law. The court has also prohibited the entry of any person into the sealed room.
The survey of the premises concluded around noon after three days of inspection in the presence of court-appointed Advocate Commissioners, lawyers from both sides, all concerned parties and officials.
On Thursday, a Varanasi court had ordered resumption of the video survey of the complex, which was halted last week following allegations of bias against the official in charge, even if it meant getting “locks opened/ broken”. The survey report must be submitted on Tuesday, it had said.
More details awaited.
