Shimla, October 22

A full address was held at the Himachal Pradesh High Court today to bid farewell to Justice Sureshwar Thakur, who has been transferred to the High Court of Punjab and Haryana at Chandigarh.

Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq said Justice Thakur had a warm and affectionate nature and a genuine concern for people. His cordial behaviour and humility endeared him to the members of the Bar and Bench and his presence would be missed at the HP High Court.

Justice Thakur said he felt extremely proud to have been a part of the high court here, as it had robustly stood up to the clarion call of delivering speedy and value-based justice. He motivated the young members of the legal profession and advised them to acquire more mature and cutting edge skills by learning from their seniors. He asked the seniors to impart the finer nuances of the profession and court craft to their juniors. He also asked the advocates to harness their skills not only towards the old civil, criminal and revenue laws but also adapt to the recently enacted taxation and corporate laws and the developing laws relating to insolvency, bankruptcy, arbitrations, etc.

Justice Sabina, Justice Tarlok Singh Chauhan, Justice Vivek Singh Thakur, Justice Ajay Mohan Goel, Justice Sandeep Sharma, and Justice Jyotsna Rewal Dua attended the full court reference. Justice PS Rana, Chairperson, HP State Human Rights Commission, and former judges of the High Court were also present.
