SC directs Centre to restore normalcy in Kashmir

New Delhi, Sep 16 (TIWN) The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Centre to ensure that normalcy is restored in Jammu and Kashmir and added that the restoration should be on selective basis keeping in mind national interest.

The Court was hearing a petition by Kashmir Times Executive Editor Anuradha Bhasin who said she was not able to publish her newspaper from Srinagar as communication was “crippled” after the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370. Bhasin had said that even a month after the restrictions were imposed, she was still facing difficulties.  A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer said as the shutdown is in the valley itself, it can be dealt with by the Jammu and Kasmir High Court. The top court also issued a notice to the Centre and state on Bhasin’s plea.
