ACJ holds Bench during transit days
Jammu, May 1: In an unprecedented move, the Acting Chief Justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court Justice Varinder Singh has decided not to avail transit days of Durbar Move and instead directed the Registry to list cases before his bench.
The directions were issued by the ACJ in view of the shortage of judges faced by the High Court. Pertinently eight out of total sanctioned posts of 14 judges are vacant in the state High Court.
“The ACJ was entitled to avail transit leave from April 30 till opening of Durbar at Srinagar but he has chosen to hold his court during this period”, a lawyer at the Jammu court said adding, “This is an exemplary move and was being welcomed by all in the legal fraternity”.
