'Kashmir Times' Editor Seeks SC Hearing on Media Restrictions in J&K
We will see,' an SC bench told her.
New Delhi: The Supreme Court asked Kashmir Times Editor Anuradha Bhasin on Tuesday to hand over the memo to its registrar for urgent listing of her plea which seeks removal of restrictions on the media in Jammu and Kashmir after the scrapping of the provisions of Article 370.
A bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra told advocate Vrinda Grover, appearing for Bhasin, “you hand over the memo to the registrar and he will look into it”.
Grover told the bench that Bhasin is an editor of a leading daily in Kashmir and there has been a complete lockdown in the Valley due to which journalists are unable to work.
“We will see,” the bench said.
Bhasin in her plea has sought directions for restoration of all modes of communication, including mobile Internet and landline services, throughout the state in order to provide an enabling environment for the media to practise its profession.
