ASI seeks 3 weeks additional time to submit report on Gyanvapi survey

ASI seeks 3 weeks additional time to submit report on Gyanvapi survey

Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh), Nov 28 (UNI) The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) on Tuesday sought three weeks additional time from the district court to submit its report on the scientific survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex.
Counsel of the Hindu side Madan Mohan Yadav said that the application filed by the ASI is likely to be taken up for hearing by District Judge Ajay Krishna Vishvesha on Wednesday.
He said that the ASI in it's application has stated that the agency experts were working hard to interpret the processed images (without interpretation) and interpretation images prepared by the CSIR-NGRI team, which carried out detailed Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) investigation at the complex, in relation to historical structure and remains.
It has been stated that the team of experts has generated enormous GPR data along hundreds of (small and large) profiles of GPR antennae. "This enormous digital data of high-resolution subsurface produced images by reflective electromagnetic energy in digital forms requires proper analysis and very careful interpretation for meaningful results in discussion with the experts, which is taking considerable time," it stated.
As per the application the ASI experts were working hard in their camp office to correlate different types of data gathered by archaeologists, epigraphists, chemists, surveyors and geo-physics experts in a uniform manner. "Amalgamation of information generated in different forms by different experts and different tools is a tedious and slow process. It would take some more time for completion of the report and final submission of the said survey report," the ASI said.
It may be noted that the Varanasi district court had on July 21 ordered for the 'scientific survey' of Gyanvapi mosque complex by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). The court ordered a survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex, excluding the Wazookhana, which was sealed after a Shivling-like structure was found there last year.
