As the judge was not present, the civil judge senior division FTC fixed May 30 as next date for hearing, said VVSS chief Jitendra Singh Visen.
In the fresh petition VVSS has demanded ban on entry of Muslims in Gyanvapi compound, handing over Gyanvapi premises to Hindus and permitting regular puja-archana (worshipping) of Lord Aadi Visheshwar. Visen has made his wife Kiran Singh plaintiff in the matter.

This case was transferred from the court of civil judge (senior division) Ravi Kumar Diwakar to the court of district judge Varanasi Ajay krishna Vishvesha on May 20 order of the Supreme Court after completion of court commission videography survey of Gyanvapi mosque between May 6 and 16 and submission of its report on May 19.
According to Visen, apart from petition no 693/2021 and the fresh one to seek ban on entry of Muslims in Gyanvapi premises, his organisation had filed four more petition on Gyanvapi and one on Laat Bhairo.
