SC reserves judgment on plea challenging J-K delimitation

New Delhi:

The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its verdict on a plea challenging the government’s decision to constitute a delimitation commission for redrawing the Legislative Assembly and Lok Sabha constituencies in Jammu and Kashmir on grounds that it violated constitutional provisions.

A bench of Justices S K Kaul and Abhay S Oka heard the submissions from Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, counsel for the Election Commission and the lawyer of the petitioners.

“Arguments heard. Judgement reserved,” the bench said.
