Sitting Judges of Allahabad HC test positive for COVID-19


Allahabad, Apr 10 (ILNS) Two sitting Judges of the Allahabad High Court on Friday tested positive for COVID-19.

According to sources, both of them have self-isolated themselves in their respective residences.

The Allahabad High Court had already issued directions, restricting its functioning for the time being. On April 3, the Court had restricted the sitting of regular courts from April 5 till 9, in view of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in Uttar Pradesh.

Only special benches to hear urgent cases have been sitting for the past week. Entry to the Court premises has also been strictly regulated.

The District and Sessions Court in Lucknow was also closed for 48 hours because of the rising number of COVID cases. Four Judicial officers and 13 employees of the Sessions Court had reportedly tested positive for the infection. ILNS/SNG/RJ
