New Delhi: Jan 10, 2020 (TNS): Indian Supreme Court has asked the government to review its actions in Occupied Kashmir within seven days as these are unjustifiable.

Pronouncing its verdict on Friday on pleas filed against restrictions in the territory, the Court termed Indian government’s restrictive orders in Occupied Kashmir as abuse of power.

The Court ordered for immediate restoration of internet for essential services like health and education and said that right to internet access is a fundamental right under the Constitution and its suspension is unconstitutional.

The court also asked the government to publish all orders on Internet suspension and travel restrictions to enable legal challenges.
