The Archaeological Survey of India has asked for a 15-day extension to file its report on the survey of the contentious Gyanvapi mosque complex. The survey itself – which went on for around 100 days to check if the mosque was built over a pre-existing structure – has already been completed.
The Varanasi court is scheduled to hear the plea for a second extension at 2 pm.
The ASI – which was to submit its report last Monday – was given one 15-day extension on November 2. The court was told ASI needed more time to compile the findings of its survey.
