New Delhi, January 31

The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday asked the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee, which manages the Gyanvapi mosque, to respond to a petition challenging a Varanasi court’s refusal to direct the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to conduct a survey of the “wazu khana” area in the mosque complex.

Acting on a revision petition filed by Rakhi Singh, one of the plaintiffs in the Shringar Gauri worshipping suit pending before the Varanasi district court, Justice Rohit Ranjan Agrawal issued a notice to the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee. In her application before the Varanasi court, Rakhi Singh contended that the survey of the wazu khana was necessary to ascertain its religious character.
