A court-mandated videography survey of the Gyanvapi Masjid complex, which was carried out for the third consecutive day, concluded on Monday amid tight security, officials said.

We spoke with all stakeholders and reached a consensus that it’s important to follow court’s order. We also cleared people’s misconceptions, worked on confidence building. The 3-day survey has ended. We thank the people of Kashi for their cooperation, Satish Ganesh, Varanasi CP told ANI

The survey of the mosque complex, which started at 8 am, concluded at around 10:15 am.

The mosque is located close to the iconic Kashi Vishwanath temple and the local court is hearing a plea by a group of women seeking permission for daily prayers before the idols on its outer walls.

“After working for over two hours, the court commission concluded its work on Monday at around 10.15 am. All parties were satisfied with the work,” Varanasi District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma told reporters.

No details of the survey of Gyanvapi mosque were disclosed by any member of the commission. The court is the custodian of the information about the survey. One member was debarred from the commission for about a few mins yesterday, later admitted to the commission, DM Varanasi told ANI

Earlier it may be recalled that a Court had rejected a plea to replace the advocate commissioner it had appointed for conducting a videography survey of the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex in Varanasi and ordered completion of the task by May 17.
