HC directive to ASI

Lucknow May 22. In a significant decision the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court hearing the Ram temple title suits today directed the Archaeological Survey of India to replace the leader of the team excavating the disputed site with a new official and report the findings of the team every fortnight.

The Court, however, did not give any specific reason for removal of the team leader Dr. B. R. Mani, but said he would continue to work in the ASI team digging the disputed site at Ayodhya.
