The Supreme Court on Friday refused to interfere with the Allahabad High Court order permitting the “scientific survey” of the Gyanvapi mosque premises stating that at this stage it will not go into the root of the matter whether such an order can be passed in the face of Places of Worship (Special Provision) Act, 1991.
Varanasi civil judge Ravi Kumar Diwakar, who had ordered the video survey of Gyanvapi mosque, has been transferred to Bareilly.
The plea sought the constitution of a fact-finding committee and the submission of a report by the ASI.
The Supreme Court was hearing the matter regarding the bail of the SP leader, Azam Khan.
The victim also stated that she was assaulted and mentally tortured by her husband and in-laws.
A bench headed by Chief Justice N.V. Ramana said a bench will be constituted, which heard the matter earlier and scheduled the matter for hearing on Wednesday.
