The Supreme Court agreed to set up a bench on Friday to hear the Gyanvapi Kashi Vishwanath case in which the Hindu side has sought an extension of an order by which protection of an area where a “Shivling” was found in Gyanvapi premises was ordered, reported Press Trust of India (PTI).
A bench headed by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud on Thursday took note of the submissions of advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain, appearing for some Hindu devotees, and said the order granting protection was expiring on 12 November.
“We will constitute a bench at 3 pm tomorrow,” the CJI said.
The top court, on 17 May, had passed an interim order directing protection of the area inside Gyanvapi premises at Varanasi. (PTI)
