Amid increasing cases of Covid-19 in Punjab, Pathankot is taking precautions to keep its judges, advocates, litigants and undertrials safe. In a two-day Covid-detection camp organised at the District Courts Complex, 180 samples were collected. After the reports came, four court officials tested positive while all judicial officers were reported to be negative.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court and the district judiciary went into the restricted-functioning mode in March following the Covid outbreak. Pathankot District and Sessions Judge Kanwaljit Singh Bajwa said 70 of the 180 samples collected during the camp had been analysed so far.

The four employees who tested positive had been shifted by the Health Department to Chintpurni Medical College and Hospital at Pathankot.

Justice Bajwa said the need for holding the camp was felt in view of the spread of the virus among police personnel and other government officials, who were at times in touch with employees of the court and members of the Bar association.
