New Delhi, Nov 21: The Supreme Court told the Jammu and Kashmir administration that it will have to respond to each and every question raised on the restrictions imposed in the erstwhile state after the abrogation of Article 370.
A bench headed by Justice NV Ramana told Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the administration, that petitioners challenging the restrictions have argued in detail and he will have to answer all questions.
Supreme court clarified that except for one petition it does not have any detention matters pending before it. We are not hearing any detention matters with regard to Jammu and Kashmir & we are currently hearing two petitions filed by Anuradha Bhasin and Ghulam Nabi Azad which are on restrictions in freedom of movement, press, etc., adding that only one habeas corpus petition is pending.
The bench said that only one habeas corpus (against detention of a business man) is pending because the petitioner had simultaneously moved before the JK High Court and the Supreme Court. Now they have withdrawn from the high court and hence the petition is pending here.
