In a bid to evaluate the functioning of the subordinate judiciary, Senior Judges of the Delhi High Court, led by Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal, made surprise visits to District Courts in Delhi.
The judges’ teams which went to various District Courts included Justices Ravindra Bhat, Hima Kohli, Sanjiv Khanna, GS Sistani, S Muralidhar and Vipin Sanghi.
The inspections were conducted to find out if judges were sitting on time in the lower courts.
This is the first such inspection this year. The Delhi High Court has in the past few months taken a strict stance on laxity and impropriety in the subordinate judiciary.
