Shahtoosh Weavers Association Appears in Supreme Court

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.
