New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay the Allahabad High Court verdict on December 14 allowing a survey of the Shahi Idgah mosque adjecent to Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Temple in Mathura.

Senior advocate Huzefa Ahmedi, on behalf of the mosque side, appealed the bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and S V N Bhatti to pause the Allahabad High Court order.

He said the court had earlier said the matter required a hearing and asked the side to file written submissions.

"At this stage, we will not stay anything. If there's any adverse order, you can come here,” the bench said.

The bench asked Ahmadi to tell the High Court that it is hearing the matter on January 9.
