  • SC to examine legal challenge to abrogation of Article 370; refers matter to 5-judge Constitution bench

    Published on August 28, 2019

    The Supreme Court today decided to examine the legal challenge against the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, and referred the matter to a five-judge Constitution bench.

    The apex court issued notices to the Centre and Jammu and Kashmir administration on a batch of pleas challenging the Presidential order by which Article 370 was abrogated.

    A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi was not in agreement with the Centre that there was no need for issuance of notice in the matter as Attorney General K K Venugopal and Solicitor General were marking their presence in the court. The bench also said all the matters would be listed for hearing in the first week of October.
