New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India Monday rejected the petitions for restoration of the special status of Occupied Kashmir.

According to the details, the Indian Supreme Court issued a biased verdict on the appeals filed for the constitutional status of Occupied Kashmir.

The Indian Supreme Court said that Occupied Kashmir is an integral part of India, Article 370 was temporary, and therefore every decision does not fall within the legal sphere.

In its verdict, the court stated that the President's order to end the special status of Jammu and Kashmir is constitutionally valid. The Indian President has powers, Article 370 does not freeze the inclusion of Occupied Kashmir. The purpose of forming the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly a permanent body was not to be made.

The Supreme Court of India rejected the petitions related to the restoration of the special status of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and issued orders to hold the elections of the Assembly by September 30, 2024.

It is pertinent to note that India abolished the special constitutional status of Occupied Kashmir in 2019. The Modi government announced the abolition of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, during which India created new stories of persecution in Kashmir.

Before 2019, the state of Jammu and Kashmir had semi-autonomous status and special powers. The political parties of Kashmir challenged this decision of the Modi government in the Supreme Court.

It should be noted that the Indian government has deliberately kept the issue of special status of Kashmir on hold for four years. India has created new stories of oppression and persecution in Kashmir, and the people have strongly protested against India's cruel decision.

Experts said that Kashmiris cannot expect justice from Indian courts. Modi has completely controlled all institutions of India including judiciary, army, governance, media and parliament.

After the decision of Article 370 by Indian Supreme Court, security was tightened in Kashmir.

After the verdict, excessive checkpoints and roadblocks have been seen in all major cities and towns in some parts of Jammu and Kashmir, large numbers of Indian troops have been deployed in Srinagar and other districts of the occupied territory to prevent anti-India protests.

Bulletproof mobile bunker vehicles are seen patrolling everywhere in Jammu and Kashmir while high-tech CCTV surveillance has been stepped up.

Islamabad: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa Monday remarked that the customs officials used to smuggle vehicles by taking money themselves and later seized them.

According to the details, a three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Qazi Faez heard the case related to the seizure of a smuggling truck by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa customs authorities, during which the chief justice reprimanded the customs lawyer.

The Chief Justice said: “Neither are you giving arguments in the court and nor talking about the law. Without the knowledge of the customs authorities, the vehicle was caught within 400 km from the Peshawar border. The customs officials first take money to smuggle the vehicles and later seize them themselves”.

Qazi Faez Isa stated that why an inquiry should not be made against the customs department. The truck was made in 1996 and seized in 2016, where did it run for 22 years, where does the smuggling take place. This truck is not a matchbox, customs are not aware where did the truck come from. Go to Peshawar and see how vehicles are smuggled.

He added that the collector of customs should tell what is happening in Pakistan. The customs officials started an unnecessary litigation, the matter reached the Supreme Court and then wasted the time of the courts.

Due to such unnecessary cases, the real cases in the courts cannot be heard, therefore future customs authorities should avoid filing such unnecessary cases, continued CJP.

Meanwhile, Justice Athar Manullah said that when the vehicles are smuggled, complete tampering is done, but the chassis number of the truck is not tampered.

Later, the court dismissed the customs appeal.
