New Delhi, June 19

New Chief Justices were appointed to six high courts on Sunday. The Department of Justice in the Union Law Ministry tweeted about these appointments.

While five HC judges were elevated as Chief Justices, the Chief Justice of the Telangana High Court, Justice Satish Chandra Sharma, has been transferred to the Delhi High Court in the same capacity.

Justice Vipin Sanghi from the Delhi High Court has been appointed the Chief Justice of the Uttarakhand High Court. Similarly, Justice Amjad A Sayed of the Bombay High Court has been made Chief Justice of the Himachal Pradesh High Court. Justice SS Shinde of the Bombay High Court goes to the Rajasthan High Court and Justice Rashmin M Chhaya from the Gujarat High Court to the Gauhati High Court.

Justice Ujjal Bhuyan, currently a judge in the Telangana High Court, has been elevated as the Chief Justice there. His parent high court is Gauhati.

The Delhi High Court had been without a regular chief justice after Justice DN Patel retired and Justice Sanghi had been the acting CJ since March 13. The names were recommended by the Supreme Court Collegium last month. The new CJs are likely to assume their new charge in the coming days. c
