Supreme Court rejects batch of pleas seeking review of Article 370 verdict

| @indiablooms | 22 May 2024, 01:11 am

The Supreme Court has rejected a batch of pleas seeking a review of the verdict scrapping Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.

A five-judge bench of the top court, led by CJI DY Chandrachud, passed the judgement on May 1, which was uploaded on the SC website Tuesday.

The four other judges on the bench were Justices Sanjiv Khanna, B R Gavai, Surya Kant and A S Bopanna (now retired).

The review petition was heard by the same judges who had earlier delivered the verdict in the case. It was heard in a chamber where no lawyer, aggrieved party, petitioner or respondent was present during the hearing.

The top court delivered the verdict on a batch of review petitions including that of a researcher and IT professional Pankaj Kumudchandra Phadnis and four from Jammu and Kashmir challenging its Dec 11 judgment upholding the Centre's August 5, 2019 decision to scrap special status under Article 370 to J&K and bifurcate the state into two UTs.

More than 20 review petitions were filed before the apex court in the case. The four from Jammu and Kashmir include one from retired trial court judge Muzzafar Iqbal Khan.

The review petition filed by Phadnis, also the president of the Abhinav Bharat Congress, a public policy think tank, sought a modification of its order that Article 370 may be kept in abeyance until the Parliament may be able to ascertain the views of the people of Jammu and Kashmir on the extent of Constitutional autonomy they need and deserve and the views of the people of India.
