The Varanasi district court on Thursday gave 10 more days to the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to complete and submit a scientific survey report of the Gyanvapi complex.

Taking up the plea of the ASI seeking three additional weeks to submit the report, District Judge A K Vishvesh said he hoped that the ASI would complete the task on time and would not ask for more time, according to counsel for the Hindu side Madan Mohan Yadav.
