Supreme Court disposes of Kerala-Karnataka Border closure case after SG claims that dispute is resolved

Debayan Roy

After the Centre submitted that the Karnataka-Kerala border closure dispute has been resolved, the Supreme Court today disposed of the matter.

At an earlier hearing, the Court had urged the two states to amicably resolve their issues concerning the border blockade that choked the free flow of vehicles carrying essential items and patients in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Karnataka had moved a writ petition in the Supreme Court against a April 1 order of the Kerala High Court by which the state borders were directed be opened. Karnataka was apprehensive about the influx of Coronavirus infected persons into the state from Kasargod district in Kerala.
