Supreme Court Dismisses Plea for Beef Ban Case to be Heard in Jammu

The Supreme Court today dismissed a petition seeking that the hearing on the beef ban in Jammu and Kashmir be heard by a three-judge bench of the high court at Jammu.

A top court bench of Chief Justice HL Dattu and Justice Arun Mishra dismissed the plea, which contended that there was an apprehension of a law and order situation if the hearing was held in Srinagar

Chief Justice Dattu while rejecting the plea, said that he had spoken to Justice N Paul Vasanta Kumar, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Chief Justice, last night and he had said that there was no apprehension of a law and order problem if the hearing took place in Srinagar

The petitioner, Parimoksh Seth, had sought the hearing be either held at Jammu or outside the state.

In view of the conflicting orders on the beef ban passed by the Jammu and Srinagar benches of the High Court, the Supreme Court had on October 7 asked its Chief Justice to constitute a three judges bench to decide the issue.
