Supreme Court rejects review petitions against verdict related to abrogation of Article 370

New Delhi – The Supreme Court dismissed the review petition filed against the verdict on Article 370. The Court refused to accept the arguments cited in these petitions and dismissed them.

1. The case was heard before a 5-member bench headed by Chief Justice Dhananjaya Chandrachud. The bench said that after examining the petition, no error was found in the earlier verdict. The review petitions are, therefore, dismissed based on the rules of the Supreme Court.

2. Awami National Conference had filed this petition in the Supreme Court. The Conference had said in the petition that there were some mistakes in the verdict of the Supreme Court regarding the Abrogation of Article 370 in December 2023. In such a situation the Court should review its verdict. The Court did not accept this argument and refused to hear it again.

3. The Supreme Court also refused to hear the constitutional validity of the law separating Ladakh from Jammu and Kashmir. In this context, the Supreme Court cited the old policy of the Government of India that the Government will soon grant full statehood to Jammu and Kashmir from the union territory.
