Srinagar: Senior joint resistance leader (JRL) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq today slammed rumour mongers over floating news on Article-35A hearing even as police urged people to maintain calm.
“Confusion is being created among people about the hearing of case pertaining to Article 35A in the Indian Supreme Court for today. In this regard, what has been reported in media, is that a fresh case has been filed challenging Article 35A in SC. This has nothing to do with,” Mirwaiz said in a tweet.
“The original case pending in SC which is listed for 31st, though the exact date would be made public on Tuesday. Most likely this new case may also be clubbed with the petitions filed by RSS backed NGOs and individuals,” he added.
Meanwhile, a police spokesman has urged people not to pay heed to rumours and maintain calm.
“Some sections of media circulated news regarding scrapping of Article-35A. The news is refuted as baseless,” a police spokesperson said, adding “The main hearing is on August 31,”
