New Delhi: Hearing petitions filed before it concerning the crackdown and restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir, the Supreme Court observed on Tuesday, "The present situation in Jammu and Kashmir is very sensitive and it should be ensured that there is no loss of life there."

The Centre replied it was reviewing the situation in Kashmir on a day-to-day basis.

Representing the government in the case, Attorney General K K Venugopal said, "We have to ensure that the law and order situation in J&K is maintained."

Referring to the agitation in Kashmir back in July 2016 after the encounter of terrorist Burhan Wani, the government informed the apex court that it would take some days to restore normalcy.

The bench refused to give immediate directions on a plea for lifting several restrictions including communication in J&K.

The court has asked the centre to ensure normalcy in the state and the matter would be taken up for hearing after two weeks.
