The petition also says that the Governor of JK may also be directed to dissolve the assembly of the state, which has failed to discharge its duties and functions which is evident from the present situation. Meanwhile, the state government may be directed to lift ban on the movement of the Yatra to the holy shrine of Shri Amarnath cave in the valley.

The Supreme Court directed the state government and the Centre to ensure safety and security of all citizens of India residing in J&K at all costs.
