A Kashmiri student who wants to visit his parents and Left leader Sitaram Yechury should be allowed to visit Jammu and Kashmir, the Supreme Court ruled today, hearing petitions against the end of special status to the state under Article 370.
“The petitioner student Mohammad Aleem Sayeed shall be allowed to travel to Jammu and Kashmir and visit Anantnag and visit his parents and file an affidavit after his return,” the court said today, ordering the state to facilitate his travel and give him adequate protection.
Mr Sayed had petitioned the court that he was unable to travel to Srinagar and did not know about his parents’ condition.
The Supreme Court has allowed CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury to visit Srinagar to check on his party colleague Mohammed Yousuf Tarigami, who was detained in Jammu and Kashmir after the Centre abrogated provisions of Article 370.
Laying conditions for his Kashmir visit, the Supreme Court told Sitaram Yechury that permission has been granted only to meet his party colleague Tarigami and not for any other political purpose.
