SRINAGAR — Kashmir High Court Bar Association Srinagar has constituted a team of its members who will remain present before the Supreme Court tomorrow and on Thursday when the bunch of petitions filed for scrapping of Article 35-A of the constitution of India are most likely to come up for hearing.

The team includes M. A. Qayoom (President); Aijaz Bedar (Vice President); Mohammad Ashraf Bhat, (General Secretary); Z. A. Shah (Senior Advocate); Z. A. Qureshi (Senior Advocate); Manzoor Ahmad Dar, (Advocate); Rafiq Ahmad Joo (Advocate);  Abdul Aziz Teeli (Advocate); and  Mudasir Yousuf (Advocate). 

“It hardly needs to be mentioned that the cases relating to Articles 35-A and 370 of the Constitution of India, have been shown listed in the cause list for the week coming from 12 March upto 14 March but have not been shown listed in the daily cause list already issued for 12 March,” a spokesman of the lawyers’ body said. 

“However, as the daily cause list for 13th and 14th of March will be issued in the evening of 12th and 13th of March respectively, therefore, the team members are required to reach Delhi on 12 March itself, so that in the event of cases getting listed in the Daily Cause List or Supplementary Cause List of 13th and/or 14th of March, they will be able to cause their appearance before the Court.”
