The Supreme Court would review the constitutional relevance of the decision to remove the special status for Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 previously this month in October.
The top tribunal also requested an answer from the centre as it heard a bunch of PILs against the choice of the government. The Supreme Court assigned all the requests to a bench of five judges.
While the National Conference, one of Jammu and Kashmir's key parties and others called the extensive public intervention unconstitutional and illegal, a newspaper's editor called for the lifting of press curbs.
Left leader Sitaram Yechury and a student from Kashmir who wishes to meet his parents were permitted to visit Jammu and Kashmir by the Supreme Court during today's hearing. We would appeal the ruling to a five-judge constitutional panel," said the Supreme Court bench, led by India's Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, while disagreeing with the statements that the notice to the centre would have a "cross-border impact."
The top lawyer of the government said that whatever the tribunal says will be sent to the United Nations. Since the attorneys featured on both sides were engaged in discussions and non-arguments, the bench, which also included the SA Bobde and SA Nazeer judges, said, "They understand what to do, they passed the order, and they will not alter."
The Supreme Court asked the centre and the J&K administration to react within seven days after a request sought instructions to restore all communication methods so that the media could operate freely in the area.
