Early Times Report

JAMMU, Apr 7: Chief Justice Gita Mittal today administered oath of office to three newly appointed judges of J&K High Court at a modest oath ceremony held in the Court Room of the Chief Justice here at High Court Complex. The Judges who took oath of Office are Justice Vinod Chatterji Koul, Justice Sanjay Dhar and Justice Puneet Gupta.
On account of guidelines with regard to measures for containment of COVID-19 pandemic and in order to avoid gathering as well as to maintain social distancing, the other judges of the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir joined the oath ceremony through Video Conferencing. Advocate General, Assistant Solicitor General of India of both the wings of the High Court, President Bar Association, High Court of J&K, Jammu, Secretary Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs UT of J&K also joined the oath ceremony through Video Linkage. The oath ceremony was also live streamed on internet through webcast also.
The Central government had appointed Justices Vinod Chatterji Koul, Sanjay Dhar and Puneet Gupta as Judges of the High Court last week. They will assume charge of their respective offices in the above order of seniority.
Warrants of appointments of Justice Vinod Chatterji Koul, Justice Sanjay Dhar and Justice Puneet Gupta read by Jawad Ahmed Officiating Registrar General High Court of Jammu and Kashmir in English and Hindi. Earlier, in the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, the warrant of the appointment of a Judge of the High Court used to be in three languages- English, Urdu and Hindi and owing to the reason that state language was Urdu, the warrant used to be read in English and Urdu version only. With the appointment of Justice Justice Vinod Chatterji Koul, Justice Sanjay Dhar and Justice Puneet Gupta as Judge of the High Court, the strength of J&K High Court is increased from Nine to Tweleve. The J&K High Court has sanctioned strength of 17 Judges including 13 Permanent Judges and 4 Additional Judges.
Notably, since the Constitution of Jammu & Kashmir ceased to have effect since August 5, the three judges were sworn oath under the Indian Constitution. Recently, Justice Rajnesh Oswal became the first judge of the J&K High Court to take oath under the Indian Constitution. All previous judges of the High Court had taken oath under the J&K Constitution.
