New Delhi, May 12 (ILNS): The situation of COVID-infected Judicial officers, who have exhausted their funds for treatment, was presented before the Delhi High Court today.
The Bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli is hearing COVID-related issues of the Capital on a day-to-day basis.
Advocate Tanveer Ahmed Mir, while mentioning the issue, also talked about the Judicial officers who have died. “In some of the cases, judicial officers have exhausted their savings, paid as much as Rs nine lakh for treatment,” Mr Mir said.
He pointed out that a notice was issued on May 10 and the matter is listed for June. “By that time, the cause will be over. Judicial officers should not be asked to vacate beds due to lack of funds,” he added.
Justice Sanghi: “Is it a general application, or have you mentioned any specific officers? Judicial officers may contact the Registrar General of this court and on the administration side whatever can be done, will be done.”
Mir: “Can I request a direction that the matter be listed before division bench 1?”
Justice Sanghi: “You can make a mentioning before DB 1 and in case of any difficulty, they can reach out to the Registrar General for any help.” ILNS\KR\SJ\RJ
