HC restrains J&K from closing schools

The directive came after the court took suo motu cognizance of the closure of a school in Jammu.

The J&K High Court Wednesday restrained the state government from closing any school without its permission. The directive came after the court took suo motu cognizance of the closure of a school in Jammu. A bench comprising Chief Justice N Paul Vasanthakumar and Justice Dhiraj Singh Thakur referred to reports about protests against the school’s closure. The land on which the school stands has been earmarked for a parking lot.
