J&K special status: SC to pronounce verdict on pleas challenging abrogation of Article 370 on December 11 | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court will on Monday deliver its judgment on a batch of pleas against the scrapping of Article 370 which granted special status to Jammu & Kashmir.
According to the cause list of December 11, Monday, uploaded on the apex court website, a five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud would deliver the verdict.
The other members of the bench are Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Sanjiv Khanna, B R Gavai and Surya Kant.
The Centre had scrapped Article 370 on August 5, 2019 and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories of J&K and Ladakh.
In September, a five-judge bench of the apex court had reserved its verdict on the pleas challenging the abrogation of Article 370.
The bench, headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud, held a marathon 16-day hearing before reserving its verdict.
During the hearing, the top court heard Attorney General R Venkataramani, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, senior advocates Harish Salve, Rakesh Dwivedi, V Giri and others on behalf of the Centre and the intervenors defending the abrogation of Article 370.
The lawyers dwelt on various issues including the constitutional validity of the Centre’s August 5, 2019 decision to abrogate the provision, the validity of Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, which split the erstwhile state into two Union Territories, challenges to imposition of Governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir on June 20, 2018 and imposition of President’s rule in the erstwhile state.
