A Kashmiri youth from Pulwama who lives in Bengaluru has moved the Karnataka HC seeking immediate restoration of all modes of communication, including mobile, landline & internet connections in Jammu & Kashmir.
In his petition, Syed Peerzada Suheel Ahmed, 23, a resident of Electronics City, claimed the communication blackout imposed by the central govt since Aug 4 have left many like him without any means to confirm his family’s safety. The clampdown has violated his fundamental rights guaranteed under Articles 14, 19(1) (a) & 21 of the Constitution, Syed maintained.
According to Syed, his father suffers from diabetes, his mother from thyroid & grandmother from several old-age related issues.
The petition came up before Justice Alok Aradhe on Tuesday & was adjourned to Aug 30.
