Jammu and Kashmir's situation sensitive, Centre must get time to ensure normalcy: Supreme Court

New Delhi, Aug 13 (IBNS): The Supreme Court on Tuesday said the situation in Jammu and Kashmir is still sensitive and the Centre must get a reasonable time to ensure normalcy in the valley, media reports said.

The top court said while it was hearing a petition seeking an immediate lifting of lockdown in Jammu and Kashmir which has lost its special status by the Centre's move of scrapping Article 370.

"We expect normalcy. But nothing can be done overnight. Nobody knows what's happening. One has to rely on the government... It is a sensitive issue," the top court has been quoted by NDTV.

The apex court has also adjourned the case for two weeks.

Also the BJP government bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories.

Several Kashmir leaders including former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Ministers- Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti- have been kept under detention. Section 144 is still imposed in the state.

In the wake of the abrogation of Article 370 and a consequent provisional lockdown to prevent violence, the Jammu and Kashmir Police has appealed all to not believe in rumours spread by few media that violence erupted in the state while categorically rubbishing foreign media reports of a police firing. Not a single bullet was fired in the last six days, said the top police officials in Kashmir on Sunday.

"There has been no untoward incident barring minor stone-pelting which was dealt with on the spot and was nipped in the bud," Director General of Police Dilbagh Singh said.

The J&K Police clarified that "people should not believe any mischievous and motivated news regarding firing incidents in the valley."
