, 5:49 PM IST

New Delhi : The Supreme Court today declined to entertain a public interest litigation seeking direction to stop alleged funding of separatist organisations in Jammu and Kashmir by the centre and the state government, saying the courts should refrain from entering the area.

Stating this plea does not deserve to be entertained, the bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Uday Umesh Lalit said the “grant of funds for the purposes of security and otherwise comes within the domain of the central government.

Pointing out that the issue raised in the plea was not part of “judicially manageable proceedings”, Justice Misra said “in issues like this the courts have minimum role”.
