16th Nov, 2004
On 16 November 2004,
the Supreme Court of India heard the bunch petitions
on shahtoosh, including the Special Leave Petition filed
by the Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI).
The Shahtoosh Weavers Association appeared in court,
requesting that they too be heard. The Division bench,
comprising of Hon’ble Justice Ruma Pal and Hon’ble
Justice C.K. Thakker granted the Association four weeks
time to file their reply. The appearance of the Shahtoosh
Weavers Association ensures that from now on, they will
be bound by the directives of the Apex Court.
The Hon’ble Court also directed the government
of the State of Jammu and Kashmir to use the electronic
media to urge people in the state to declare any stocks
of shahtoosh they may be holding.
