Bathinda Judge referred to PGI

Bathinda Judge referred to PGI

Chandigarh, July 8

A District and Sessions Judge and a judicial magistrate in Punjab and 11 officials posted at the Nuh judicial courts in Haryana have tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 24 hours. Available information suggests that Bathinda District and Sessions Judge Kamaljit Lamba has been referred to the PGIMER, Chandigarh. The other judicial officer who has been infected is currently posted at Jalandhar.

Earlier, two Additional District and Sessions Judges from Haryana had earlier tested Covid positive. The surge in the Covid cases among judicial officers comes amid calls and representations by a section of lawyers to resume physical functioning. In an attempt to make the hearing process more efficient, the HC on Wednesday announced its decision to permit the filing of civil writ petitions through the “ordinary filing counter”. — Saurabh Malik
