Jammu and Kashmir’s administration withdrew the suspension order against Zahoor Ahmad Bhat
Zahoor Ahmad Bhat appeared in the Supreme Court in favour of Article 370 in the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state and raised a legal challenge to the nullification’s validity of Article 370 which granted J&K a semi-autonomous status. Due to this, Zahoor Ahmad Bhat was suspended from his job by the Jammu and Kashmir administration headed by Chief Justice D. Y. Chandrachud. After the court hearing, two senior advocates Kapil Sibal and Rajeev Dhavan raised the issue of his suspension. Kapil Sibal said,
He took leave for two days. Argued before this court and went back and was suspended,” Sibal said. The bench, also comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Sanjiv Khanna, BR Gavai and Surya Kant, asked Venkataramani to talk to the J-K Lieutenant Governor and look into the issue. “This should not happen. Someone arguing before this court gets suspended…,” the bench said. Venktaramani replied that he would look into the issue.”
On 28 August 2023, the Supreme Court assigned Attorney General R. Venkataramani and Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to investigate the sudden suspension of Zahoor Ahmad Bhat.
