On November 2, the Gyanvapi mosque management committee filed its objection to the petitioners’ demand for a survey of two underground places (“tahkhana”) on the mosque premises.
The petitioners’ lawyers had sought time to file their counter-objection, following which the district judge had fixed November 11 as the next date of hearing in the matter.
Pandey said during the hearing on November 2, the Hindu petitioners had demanded a survey by opening the locks of the closed cellars on the Gyanvapi campus. The lawyers representing the mosque committee had objected to it and the other side had sought time for filing a counter-objection, he said.
