The Supreme Court Friday said it will take a decision on early listing of petitions challenging the Centre’s decision to abrogate provisions of Article 370 which had given special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
A bench comprising Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justices P S Narasimha and J B Pardiwala took note of the submissions of senior advocate Raju Ramchandran, appearing for one of the parties, that the pleas needed an urgent hearing.
“All right. I will take a call on it,” the CJI said.
Article 370 which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir was revoked on August 5, 2019 and the state was bifurcated into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir and Leh-Ladakh.
