Supreme Court: Gyanvapi Video Inquiry: Supreme Court Refuses to Adopt Interim Standstill Order | India News


NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday declined to adopt an interim standstill order on the investigation into the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri compound in Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.
The Supreme Court, however, agreed to consider entering a plea by the Muslim against the Gyanvapi premises investigation.
A bench headed by Chief Justice NV Ramana was told by lead attorney Huzefa Ahmadi, representing the Muslim side in the case, that a plea had been filed against the investigation at the site.
The bench led by the CJI had not yet decided on the urgent registration of the plea. “I don’t know anything. How can I place such an order? I will read. Let me see,” said CJI Ramana.
“We have filed a case regarding an investigation to be carried out in relation to the Varanasi property. This (Gyanvapi) has been a mosque since time immemorial and this is clearly prohibited by the law on places of worship,” Ahmadi said. .
A Varanasi local court on Thursday rejected a request to replace the commissioner-lawyer it had appointed to conduct a video investigation of the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri compound and set a May 17 deadline for the same.
The district court also appointed two other attorneys to assist the commissioner-advocate with the investigation at the mosque, which is located near the iconic Kashi Vishwanath temple. He ordered the police to register the FIRs in case there was an attempt to sabotage the exercise.
