It may be note that the apex court has so far refused to interference on the Jammu and Kashmir. Responding to petitions filed to lift the restrictions, the court had said that the administration should be given adequate time to restore normalcy in the state to withdraw the curbs.

Earlier this month, the Supreme Court had refused to accept a plea against communication blockade in the state filed by Robert Vadra’s relative Tehseen Poonawalla. The court had issued a notice to the union government on a petition filed by Anuradha Bhasin, Executive Editor of Kashmir Times. The final hearing for that petition is also scheduled for tomorrow.
