Judge infected, 2 in isolation

Chandigarh, September 15

Covid-19 continues to hit the judiciary hard. A Punjab and Haryana High Court judge has tested positive for the virus, while two other judges are in quarantine after staff or close family members were found to be infected.

Besides, 31 judicial officers and officials in the subordinate judiciary across Punjab and Haryana have tested positive in the past three weeks. No less than 85 other judicial officers and officials have been quarantined.

Apart from this, 42 officials in the Punjab and Haryana High Court have tested positive and several others have been quarantined. Prior to this, nearly 800 judicial officers, their families and staff in the two states and Chandigarh were quarantined, indicating the impracticality of permitting physical functioning of the courts. Besides, 44 judicial officers and court officials have tested positive. — TNS
