In a letter written to Indore and Dhar authorities, Additional Director General (ADG) of ASI, Prof Alok Tripathi requested to provide safe access to the site to conduct the survey.


Further, Supreme Court has decided to review a public interest litigation (PIL) on Thursday, which questions the tradition of political parties offering freebies during elections.
