Military officers, bureaucrats move SC over Article 370

Saturday - August 17, 2019 10:42 pm , Category : INDIA
New Delhi, Aug 17 (IANS) Six retired military officers and bureaucrats have filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the decision to revoke Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
The petitioners include Air Vice Marshal (Retd) Kapil Kak, Major General (Retd) Ashok Kumar Mehta, former IAS officers Hindal Haidar Tyabji, Amitabha Pande and Gopal Pillai, and former member of the Home Ministry's group of interlocutors for J&K, Radha Kumar.
The petitioners said that the method of altering Article 370 by purporting to apply Article 367 with modifications to the state of Jammu and Kashmir is nothing but a fraud on the Constitution.
The petitioners have sought quashing of the Presidential Order as well as the Jammu & Kashmir (Reorganisation) Act, 2019.
This is the seventh petition filed in the Supreme Court challenging the abrogation of Article 370.
