SC to hear petition challenging highway ban today

SRINAGAR: A plea filed by Awami National Conference senior vice president Muzafar Ahmad Shah challenging the ban on civilian traffic on Srinagar-Jammu highway will be heard in the Supreme Court Monday morning.
Shah told Kashmir Reader that the case is listed for hearing at 10:30am. He said his plea was filed two weeks ago when the civilian traffic ban was imposed.
“I was informed that it will be listed tomorrow in the morning,” he said.
The petition has demanded that the ban be revoked immediately. A group of seven lawyers led by Suhail Malik will argue for the petition.
“We have presented our case with strong evidence, which shows to what extent the ban has affected fundamental rights of Kashmiris,” Shah said.
