One-liner: A district court in Varanasi on Thursday rejected the plea to change the court-appointed advocate commissioner for conducting a video survey of the Gyanvapi-Shringar Gauri complex.

Two more to assist: It also appointed two additional advocate commissioners to assist him.

Court direction: The court also directed for the completion of the survey by May 17 and submission of its report, Abhay Nath Yadav, who is representing the Gyanvapi mosque management committee, said.

Verdict: The court, which had heard the matter relating to the opening of two basements located inside the mosque complex for videography, delivered the verdict after hearing the arguments of both sides.

Not impartial: The Gyanvapi mosque management committee had filed an application seeking a replacement of court official Ajay Kumar Mishra, claiming he was not impartial.
