In a correlated update, a Hindu plaintiff has submitted an application to the Supreme Court, urging it to annul its May 19, 2023, decree that temporarily halted the scientific examination of a 'Shivling' purportedly unearthed within the Gyanvapi mosque complex in Varanasi during a videographic survey. The application specifically implores the Supreme Court to instruct the Director General of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to conduct a comprehensive investigation and assessment of the alleged "Shivling." The objective is to ascertain its characteristics and associated attributes without causing any disruption to the revered structure situated within the secured area. The proposed examination entails the removal of artificial and contemporary walls/floors surrounding the 'Shivling.'
