New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear a batch of petitions challenging the Centre's decision to abrogate Article 370, revoking the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, on Wednesday morning.


The apex court will also hear the petitions seeking removal of other restrictions including communication blockade in the state which is coming in the way of journalists to carry out their professional duties.

While the petition against the scrapping of Article 370 has been filed by advocate ML Sharma, National Conference MPs Mohd Akbar Lone and Justice (rtd) Hasnain Masoodi have challenged the changes made in the constitutional status of Jammu and Kashmir by the Centre.
