Solicitor General Tushar Mehta mentioned the matter for transfer of various petitions challenging validity of the CAA in different High Courts.

Chief Justice of India Bobde replied saying that the court would like to have the view of the High Court as well. He said that High Courts may have contrasting opinion on the matter.

Mehta urged that the matter be listed for hearing on Thursday. He also said that more than 60 public interest litigations have been filed in the SC against CAA.

The Karnataka High Court had on Tuesday posted for hearing the petitions challenging the constitutionality of the CAA. The court had cited that there is no order by the Supreme Court prohibiting high courts from taking up the cases pertaining to the Citizenship Amendment Act.

A series of petitions were filed in the SC by several activists and organisations against the CAA in the month of December, the bench headed by CJI Bobde had posted the matters for hearing in the third week of January.
