A petition has been filed against former chief ministers of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah and other political leaders for allegedly opposing the abrogation of Article 370 of Constitution of India.

Advocate Murad Ali in Betia Court has filed the plea under charges of sedition and criminal conspiracy for opposing the scrapping of the Article which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

On August 5, 2019Home Minister Amit Shah in the Rajya Sabha announced that Article 370 of the Constitution of India will be scrapped.

Soon after President Ram Nath Kovind issued a presidential order- Constitution (Application to Jammu & Kashmir) Order, 2019, to extend all the provisions of the Constitution of India on the state.

"I have filed a case against former chief ministers of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah and other political leaders who have opposed the abrogation of Article 370," Ali told ANI.

"I have filed the case under Section 124 A (sedition), 153 A (promoting enmity between different groups of religion, race, place of birth, residence and language), 153 B, 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code," he said.

As per reports, the court after hearing the case has transferred it to the court of Judicial Magistrate K.K. Shahi.

In the complaint, Ali has alleged that PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and National Conference deputy chief Omar Abdullah opposed the scrapping of the Article which has created a rage for the Indian Government through print, electronic and social media.

"They attempted to create enmity among the citizens of other states of India. They have hurt the integrity and unity of the nation. They have done the work of disturbing national integrity and peace," he said.

The matter will be heard on September 24, 2019.
