SC slaps fine on Centre in J-K issue

New Delhi, Feb. 6 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Monday slapped a fine of Rs. 30,000 on the Centre for not filing a reply on the issue of formation of minority commission in Jammu and Kashmir.

The apex court earlier also expressed its discontent and issued a notice to the Centre and state government after a petition was filed in this regard.

The state government, however, filed an affidavit in the apex court last year, opposing the petition.

The petition was filed for creation of a minority commission in the state to safeguard the interests of religious and linguistic minorities.
