File report on ‘detention’ of kids: SC to HC panel

The Supreme Court on Friday asked the Juvenile Justice Committee of the Jammu and Kashmir High Court to submit a report on alleged detention of children in Kashmir due to restrictions imposed by the authorities after the scrapping of crucial provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution last month.

A Bench, headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, which had on September 16 sought a report from the Jammu and Kashmir Chief Justice Gita Mittal on allegations about children being detained and people being unable to approach courts in the state, said the allegation was not true.

“We have received a report from the Chief Justice (of J&K HC) which does not support your statement,” the Bench told senior counsel Huzefa Ahmadi, representing child rights activists Enakshi Ganguly and Shanta Sinha.
