The order came as the apex court of India took up multiple pleas against the decision of the Indian Prime Minister Modi to revoke the special status of the occupied valley on August 5.

The Supreme Court of India, however, ordered the Modi-led government to submit a report that contains the actual situation of Indian-held Kashmir which has been lockdown for 43 days with the communication blackout.

During the hearing of petitions against the government’s decision, Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi remarked that if needed, he would himself visit Jammu and Kashmir. He further expressed concerns over the reports of inaccessibility of Kashmiris to the Kashmir High Court.
