The petition has been drawn by advocates Arjun Krishnan, Kaustubh Singh and Rajalakshmi Singh and settled by Senior Advocate Prashanto Sen.
Terming the presidential order on abrogation of Article 370 as constitutionally invalid, the petition states that a presidential order under "Article 370(3) of the Constitution requires the Constituent Assembly of Jammu and Kashmir to recommend a presidential notification under Article 370(3) declaring that Article 370 shall cease to be operative".
"The Jammu and Kashmir Constituent Assembly no longer exists and thus could not have made a recommendation to that effect," the petition states.
