Gyanvapi mosque case: The videography survey of the Gyanvapi Masjid complex in Varanasi resumed on Saturday amid tight security arrangements. The survey work went on in a peaceful manner and it will continue on Sunday. "The survey work went on in a peaceful manner. And, there has been no objection from anyone. Everything is normal and conducive, and all parties co-operated," Police Commissioner of Varanasi A Satish Ganesh said. The mosque management committee had indicated that it will cooperate for now with the team assigned the task by a local court. The mosque is located close to the iconic Kashi Vishwanath temple and the local court is hearing a plea by a group of women seeking permission for daily prayers before the idols on its outer walls. An important meeting was held with all parties concerned on Friday and an appeal was made to them to cooperate in the commission's work and the maintenance of law and order. Lawyers representing the Hindu and Muslim sides were present at the meeting held on Friday by the district magistrate. The survey was stalled last week amid objections by the mosque committee, which claimed that the advocate commissioner did not have the mandate to film inside the premises. The committee accused him of bias and filed a plea for his replacement. In its order on Thursday, the district court said locks should be broken if the keys are not available to access certain areas of the complex for the survey.
