Supreme Court Drives Away Yechuri, Says His Petition No Longer Survives

In a shameful act to further interfere in the Centre’s attempts to bring back peace in Kashmir, the CPM General Secretary Sitaram Yechuri’s counsel once again appeared in the supreme India’s top court, but to be scolded by the justice who said ‘prayer is already answered.’

While hearing a set of petitions on restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir, the court said Sitaram Yechury that it was a habeas corpus (writ directing production of a person in detention before the court) petition and he has already been granted indulgence by the court.

“You have moved a habeas corpus petition. That prayer no longer survives as that person — Mohammed Yousuf Tarigami — has himself moved the apex court challenging the abrogation of Article 370. It was a limited question. what further relief do you want,” the bench told senior advocate Raju Ramachandaran, representing Yechury.

Ramachandaran said he wants that either the detention of Tarigami be declared illegal or the authority be asked to justify his detention after 5 August.
