The Varanasi District Court on Tuesday ordered that all the seven cases related to Gyanvapi will be heard together.
“All the seven cases related to the Gyanvapi case will now be heard simultaneously,” Varanasi District Judge ordered.
On Monday, the District Judge had reserved the verdict after the hearing. The Hindu side had filed a petition regarding this.
In August 2021, five women filed a petition in the local court seeking the right to perform regular worship at the Shringar Gauri site located in the Gyanvapi mosque premises.
In April 2022, a senior division court ordered a survey on the mosque premises. The survey was completed in May 2022. During that time, a Shivling was allegedly found in the mosque which the Muslim side claimed was a fountain.
The Supreme Court on May 19 told the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to not conduct carbon dating of a ‘Shivling’ inside the Gyanvapi mosque-Kashi Vishwanath corridor, till the next hearing on the matter.
The next hearing in the matter is scheduled for August 7.
