SC nod for Yechury visit to Kashmir


The Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed the CPI (M) general secretary, Mr.  Sitaram Yechury, to visit Jammu and Kashmir to meet his party colleague and former MLA, Mohammed Yusuf Tarigami, in the state.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, however, directed Mr. Yechury to only meet Mr. Tarigami and not use the visit for any political purpose.

The bench said if Yechury indulged in any political activities, the authorities was free to report them to the apex court.
