New Delhi: Hearing the case related to Gyanvapi Mosque, the SC today axed the commissioner in charge of the survey Ajay Mishra after lawyers presenting the Hindu petitioners claimed to have found a Shivling near a pound during the videography. The dismissal was ordered on questions of how the survey details were leaked since the court-mandated filming was supposed to be confidential.
