On Thursday, the Supreme Court allowed Iltija Javed, the daughter of former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, to meet her mother. The Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi granted Iltijia Javed the permission to visit Srinagar. But the apex court has asked her to get the necessary permission from the concerned district authorities.

While passing its judgment, the apex court said that Iltijia Javed can meet her mother, Mehbooba Mufti in private on a date of her choice. Attorney General K.K. Venugopal and Solicitor General Tushar Mehta who were appearing for the Centre before the apex court had opposed the plea.
