A five-judge bench was hearing a batch of petitions others challenging the abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Central government had in August announced a decision to scrap Article 370, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcate the state in two union territories, Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. The two UTs came into existence on 31 October.

Pursuant to this, a series of petitions were filed against the Centre's decision.
