The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has sought permission from the Allahabad High Court to make minor changes in its controversial Ayodhya excavation report.

ASI on Friday filed an application before the special Lucknow bench of the courthearing the Ayodhya title suit, seeking permission to make a couple of minor changes in the report filed on August 22.

The report mentions that a statue of a "divine couple" was found in trenches k-3 and k-4.However,it was actually discovered from trenches f-3 and f-4, the ASI said in its application, calling it a "printing mistake".

ASI also said it inadvertently omitted to add the word 'pre' as a prefix to the "sultanate period" while describing some findings in the report.

ASI also sought court's permission to take back the negatives of the photographs of the excavation work for the indexing purposes.

Meanwhile, the court granted four weeks times to the concerned parties to file objections, if they have any, on the objections filed by the Central Sunni Waqf Board (CSWB) on the ASI's excavation report.
