New Delhi, Sep 29 (TIWN) The Supreme Court on Saturday constituted a five-judge Constitution bench headed by Justice N. V. Ramana to conduct hearing on a clutch of petitions connected with revoking the provisions of Article 370, which gave autonomy to Jammu and Kashmir.

A Presidential Order on August 5 read down Article 370, through which special rights and privileges were given to the people of Jammu and Kashmir since 1954 in accordance with the Instrument of Accession.  The special status was bestowed on Jammu and Kashmir by incorporating Article 35A in the Constitution by an order of President Rajendra Prasad in 1954 on the advice of the Jawaharlal Nehru Cabinet. Parliament was not consulted.
