Shimla, October 8

Justice Sabina was sworn in as a judge of the High Court of Himachal Pradesh here today. She was administered the oath of office by Governor Rajendra Vishwanath Arlekar in a simple but impressive ceremony held at Raj Bhawan.

She was transferred from the Rajasthan High Court to the High Court of Himachal. Besides Acting Chief Justice Ravi Malimath, Chairperson the Human Right Commission Justice PS Rana, Advocate General Ashok Sharma, DGP Sanjay Kundu, and Shimla Mayor Satya Kaundal were also present.

Meanwhile, Justice Anoop Chitkara, who has been transferred to the High Court of Punjab and Haryana at Chandigarh, was given a warm send-off. A full court address was held in his honour at the High Court.

Acting Chief Justice Ravi Malimath said that Justice Chitkara hails from a traditional family of lawyers. In spite of his busy schedule, he had delivered many lectures and contributed a lot to the growth of law. Justice Anoop Chitkara, while remembering his journey as the HC judge, said, "Every day, the new generation lawyers light up my court with their youthful exuberance and eagerness to learn. This new generation is socially engaged and hungry for change. They have the power of technology at their side, which they creatively wield to advance the justice delivery system."
