Supreme Court to Hear Article 370 Case Day-to-Day from August 2

The Supreme Court of India has scheduled day-to-day hearings in the Article 370 case from August 2, 2023. The case challenges the abrogation of Article 370, which granted special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

A five-judge bench, led by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud, will hear the case. The other judges on the bench are Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Sanjiv Khanna, BR Gavai, and Surya Kant.

The petitioners in the case argue that the abrogation of Article 370 was unconstitutional and that it has led to a number of human rights abuses in Jammu and Kashmir. They also argue that the abrogation has undermined the right of self-determination for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

The government has defended the abrogation of Article 370, arguing that it was necessary to bring Jammu and Kashmir into the mainstream of Indian society. The government has also argued that the abrogation has led to increased security and development in the state.

The day-to-day hearings in the Article 370 case are expected to last for several weeks. The court is likely to issue a judgment in the case by the end of the year.
