Chandigarh, August 10

Amid spurt in Covid-19 cases, the Punjab and Haryana High Court today began a programme to train judicial officers for the states of Punjab and Haryana. As many as 50 newly recruited judicial officers will be trained for a year as a part of the process.

Clearly indicating that the justice delivery mechanism could not be placed in the state of suspended animation following the outbreak, Justice Rajan Gupta inaugurated the online training programme. Also the president of the board of governors of the Chandigarh Judicial Academy, Justice Gupta asserted: "A life of a judge demands the best and the tough out of life. A judge is a missionary whose mission is to impart justice in society. A selfless service for the humanity is what a life of a judge is".

Justice Gupta added a judge was required to be courteous, humble, sensitive and a person with minimum needs. The human race was passing through the unprecedented crisis following the outbreak. It had made a paradigm shift in the ways humans had been conducting themselves. For addressing the challenge, new modes and methods of lifestyle were required to be adopted.

"The pandemic has restricted our physical movements, but connected us digitally," Justice Gupta said, adding that he felt proud to say that the country had leapfrogged in technology to undertake all necessary activities in the moment of crisis. Director (Administration)-cum-District and Sessions Judge Shalini Singh Nagpal and Director (Academics) Dr Balram K Gupta were present at the time of address. — TNS
