The Supreme Court on Thursday said that it'll await the Varanasi district judge's decision on the Gyanvapi mosque committee's application raising objections to the maintainability of the lawsuit filed by Hindu devotees.

A bench of Justices DY Chandrachud, Surya Kant, and PS Narasimha said that it's posting for October first week hearing on the appeal of Gyanvapi mosque committee's plea against the Allahabad state supreme court order upholding the appointment of court commissioner to survey the positioning. 

The bench said that it's been apprised of the actual fact that proceedings before the district judge are still underway and it'd be appropriate if the appeal of the mosque committee is kept pending till the end result of the applying filed under Order 7 Rule 11 questioning the maintainability of the suit.

On May 20, the highest court transferred the lawsuit filed by Hindu devotees on Gyanvapi mosque from civil judge (senior division) to district judge, Varanasi saying observing the "complexities" and "sensitivity" of the difficulty, it's better if a senior judicial officer having an experience of over 25-30 years handles this case.
