Kashmir Restrictions Have to be Reviewed From Time to Time, Govt Tells SC

The Supreme Court on Thursday told the Jammu and Kashmir administration that they may impose restrictions in the name of national interest, but it has to be reviewed from time to time.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

A bench headed by Justice N V Ramana, which was hearing a batch of petitions challenging the restrictions imposed in the state following the scrapping of its special status, was told by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta that they were reviewing restrictions on a daily basis.

“The restrictions are being reviewed daily. In around 99 per cent area, no restrictions are there,” Mehta, who was appearing for the state administration, told the apex court.

The bench, also comprising R Subhash Reddy and B R Gavai,asked Mehta about the restriction on Internet in the state. The solicitor general told the court that restrictions on Internet was going on as the issue has “cross border implications”.

The apex court would hear the arguments on these pleas November 5.
