The Supreme Court today sought the response of the Centre on a plea challenging the validity of Article 370 of the Constitution that grants special autonomous status to Jammu and Kashmir.

The petition challenged the April 11 order of the Delhi High Court rejecting a plea saying nothing survives in it as the apex court has already dismissed a similar prayer on the issue.

A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and justices Adarsh Goel and D Y Chandrachud issued the notice to the Centre on the petition which also sought a direction to declare the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir as “void”, “illegal” and “ultra vires” of the Constitution of India.

The bench asked the government to reply within four weeks.

In her petition, Kumari Vijayalakshmi Jha claimed that the high court had dismissed her plea by “wrongly following and misreading” the earlier judgment of the apex court.
