The Archaeological Survey of India, which carried out excavation at the disputed site in Ayodhya to ascertain whether a temple existed beneath the Babri Masjid, on Friday submitted its final report in the Allahabad high court.

The report, sealed in a cover and contained in two boxes, was submitted in the office of the officer on special duty Narendra Parsad, who is conducting day-to-day hearing of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit.

The ASI team leader, Hari Majhi, accompanied by lawyers of contesting parties, arrived at Prasad's office at around 1220 IST and gave the report.

A bench, comprising Justice S R Alam, Justice Bhanwar Singh and Justice Khemkaran, had asked the ASI to submit the report by Friday.

The excavation began on March 12 on the acquired land on the high court's order and by August 7, when it ended, the ASI team had made 1360 discoveries, sources said.
