Article 370 verdict highlights: The Constitution bench of the Supreme Court has pronounced its verdict on a batch of petitions challenging the abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union territories. 

The top court upheld the government's decision to abrogate Article 370 and said that steps should be taken to conduct elections in the assembly by September 30 next year. SC also upheld reorganisation of Ladakh as Union Territory. 

Article 370, which was abrogated on August 5, 2019, was an interim arrangement due to war conditions in the erstwhile state, Justice Chandrachud said.

A five-judge constitution bench comprising Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Sanjiv Khanna, BR Gavai, and Surya Kant passed the judgment. On September 5, the apex court reserved the judgement after hearing the arguments for 16 days.

Article 370 gave impetus to separatism in J-K: Amit Shah on day of SC's verdict

Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that Article 370 gave impetus to separatism in Jammu and Kashmir which led to killings of several people.

"We should understand that 42,000 people were killed. Why were they killed? It is not a question of Hindus and Muslims. There are more Muslims in Gujarat (than in Kashmir), and there are more Muslims in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Assam states. Why did separatism not happen there? There is no question of boundary either. Rajasthan and Gujarat share their boundaries with Pakistan too. Why it happened (only in J-K). (It was) because Article 370 gave impetus to separatism which led to terrorism," he said.
