A team of lawyers from the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association Srinagar will remain present on 13 and 14 March in the Supreme Court when the pleas challenging the Article 35A and Article 370 might come up for hearing.

In a statement, the Bar said the team comprises Bar present MA Qayoom, vice-present Aijaz Bedar, general secretary Mohammad Ashraf Bhat, senior advocates ZA Shah, ZA Qureshi besides advocates Manzoor Ahmad Dar, Rafiq Ahmad Joo, Abdul Aziz Teeli, and Mudasir Yousuf.

“The cases relating to Articles 35A and 370 have been shown listed in the cause list from 12-14 March but have not been shown listed in the daily cause list already issued for 12 March, 2019,” the Bar said.

“However, as the daily cause list for 13 and 14 of March, 2019, will be issued in the evening of 12 and 13 March, 2019 respectively, therefore, the team members are required to reach Delhi on 12 itself so that in the event of cases getting listed in the daily cause list or supplementary cause list of 13 and/or 14 March, 2019, they will be present in the court,” the Bar said.
