The Majlis Bachao Tehreek (MBT) on Thursday demanded that the State immediately take possession of a house near the Dargah Takhya Gujrathi Shah Baba at Rajmohalla, Ramkote, where an old masjid was reportedly unearthed during construction on Monday.

MBT corporator Amjedullah Khan said the structure resembled a mosque and noted that it finds a mention in the Wakf records. He wanted the government and the Wakf Board to take possession of the piece of land. A team from the Archaeological Department and Wakf Board should take up further excavation works at the site.

Meanwhile, police had posted a picket to prevent law and order problem.
