SC seeks govt response on plea of Kargil hero’s father

The court also tagged this plea with another petition pertaining to the Shimla Agreement between India and Pakistan pending with it.

"We tag the case with other matter as it involves question of very wide ramifications, internationally. If direction is needed within the country, then there is no problem. Before any order is passed by this court, there should be absolute clarity that we have got the jurisdiction. There is already a matter pending pertaining to a treaty between Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Indira Gandhi (Shimla Agreement). Can the court issue mandamus in a matter like this? They are covered by a treaty, where consent of both the states is required," said the Bench.
