Respond to each and every question raised on Kashmir restrictions: Supreme Court tells Jammu and Kashmir administration
The Supreme Court on Thursday (November 21) told the Jammu and Kashmir administration that it will have to answer every question related to the restrictions imposed by the Centre in the erstwhile state after the scrapping of Article 370 on August 5.
A three-judge SC bench led by Justice NV Ramana told Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who represented the Jammu and Kashmir administration before the apex court, that petitioners raising objections over the Centre's move to impose restrictions in the region have submitted their arguments in detail and the Jammu and Kashmir administration will have to respond to each and every question.
"Mr. Mehta you have to answer each and every question raised by the petitioners who have argued in detail. Your counter affidavit does not help us to come to any conclusion. Don't give the impression that you are not giving enough attention to the case," said the bench, comprising Justices R Subhash Reddy and BR Gavai.
