NEW DELHI: On Wednesday, the Indian Supreme Court submitted petitions to a five-judge constitutional committee for trial in the first week of October concerning the repeal of the unique status for occupied Kashmir.
The requests oppose the order of the Modi government to revoke Article 370 and to impose curfew in occupied Kashmir.
Notices on petitions challenging Article 370 were also issued to the Indian federal government. The Indian Supreme Court also allowed occupied Kashmir to visit CPI (M) Secretary General Sitaram Yechury and a student at Delhi’s Jamia Millia University.
India repealed Article 370 on August 5, which gave occupied Kashmir unique status. In an unprecedented amount of Indian troops, the Modi regime sent the contested valley, enforced a curfew and put house arrest of Kashmiri leaders.
