On reports of J&K leaders put under house arrest ahead of SC verdict on abrogation of Article 370, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha said, "This is totally baseless."

"No one has been put under house arrest or arrested due to political reasons in J&K. It is an attempt to spread rumours", he said.

Meanwhile Srinagar Police also wrote, "No person has been put under house arrest."

A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud willdecide whether the decision taken by the Centre on August 5, 2019, to abrogate the provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution which conferred special status on the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir was constitutionally valid.

Security has been heightened in Srinagar ahead of the Supreme Court's verdict on the batch of petitions challenging the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.

On August 5, 2019, the central government announced the revocation of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir granted under Article 370 and split the region into two union territories.
