SRINAGAR: Various pleas challenging the constitutional validity of Article 370 which grants special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir are listed before the Supreme Court today.

It has been learnt that the case “figures at item number 5 in the miscellaneous list of April 2” before a bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Sanjiv Khanna.

“There is constitutional bench today (Tuesday) and if it continues without any break, then there is no chance for this case to come up for hearing,” a source said. “However, if the bench breaks for any reason, the case may come up for hearing”.

On January 14 this year, the Supreme Court had tagged a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and lawyer Ashwini Upadhyay against Article 370 with another similar petition filed by Kumari Vijayalakshmi Jha.

The court had listed the matter for hearing on April 2.
