[1/10, 11:55] Sekarreporter: Besides the petition by Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, the apex court had heard the petitions filed by Anuradha Bhasin, Executive Editor of Kashmir Times, and few intervenors questioning restrictions in the valley.
The Supreme Court on January 10 ordered the Jammu and Kashmir administration to review all the restrictions pertaining to Internet services in the region. Jammu and Kashmir is facing an Internet shutdown since August 5, 2019.
Temporary suspension of Internet and curtailing basic freedoms of citizens should not be arbitrary and is open to judicial review, the three-judge Bench led by Justice Ramana said.
