On this, the court of Civil Judge (Senior Division) Ravi Kumar Diwakar had issued an order on April 26 and ordered a videography survey of the Gyanvapi-Sringar Gauri complex to be submitted by May 10. The court had appointed Ajay Mishra as the court commissioner for this. Earlier, the survey proceedings had started on 6th May, which was halted on 7th May due to the uproar. The court commissioner and the plaintiff who came to conduct the survey were opposed by the Muslim side.

On May 9, the Muslim side raised questions on the impartiality of the court commissioner and demanded his removal. A debate went on for three days in the court regarding this and then on Thursday, a Varanasi court rejected the application for removal of court commissioner Ajay Mishra. Along with this, Vishal Singh was appointed as Special Court Commissioner and Ajay Pratap Singh as Assistant Court Commissioner. The court made it clear that videography would be done inside the Gyanvapi mosque as well. After which the survey work started in Gyanvapi Masjid from today.
