The Supreme Court allowed intervention applications filed by Foundation for Media Professionals and the Indian Journalists Union on 1 October 2019. The two journalists bodies had sought to intervene in the petition filed by Anuradha Bhasin, executive editor of Kashmir Times.

Previously, the Supreme Court had directed the respondents to file a reply, only the government of Jammu and Kashmir has filed one. The centre is yet to file it, though J&K is currently under Presidents rule.
