New Delhi, 12 May 2022

As per news report of The Indian Express, two more advocate commisioners — Ajay Singh and Vishal Singh — have been appointed by the court, in addition to Advocate Ajay Kumar Mishra.  They were appointed after Mishra was accused of being biased by the Anjuman Intezamia mosque committee. The Commission will submit a report by May 17 on the inspection of the Gyanvapi-Kashi Vishwanath temple complex. The court ordered an inspection in April following a petition by five Hindu women who asked for year-long access to pray at a Hindu shrine located within the Gyanvapi Mosque complex in Varanasi. Presently, the contested site is opened for prayers once a year.
