Supreme Court asks J&K government not to use pellet guns

The Supreme Court on Friday said it will ask the government not to use pellet guns in Jammu and Kashmir if there was no violence, no stone throwing and students get back to classes.

Asking leaders of the J&K Bar Association to come forward with positive suggestions to diffuse the situation, Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar, Justice D.Y. Chandrachud and Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul said in such a situation they would ask the government not to use pellet guns.

“If you suggest something within the framework of Constitution, we will assure you there will be a dialogue,” the Chief Justice said.

Giving time to the Bar Association to come up with suggestions, the court said: “You must first tell us what you will do. Then we will direct the government. If you keep throwing stones, how will it work?”

Taking exception to the affidavit filed by the Bar Association, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said they were even doubting the accession of Jammu and Kashmir to India.
