Barin Ghosh to take over as Sikkim HC Chief Justice tomorrow

By The Assam Tribune

GANGTOK, April 12 (PTI) - Jammu and Kashmir High Court Chief Justice Barin Ghosh will be sworn in tomorrow as the Chief Justice of the Sikkim High Court, ending speculation over who will assume this post.

He will be sworn in at 1700 hours by the acting Governor MK Narayan at the Raj Bhawan, it was officially stated here today.

Soon after Ghosh was transferred to the Sikkim High Court, the Supreme Court collegium had recommended that controversial Karnataka High Court Chief Justice PD Dinakaran be posted to Sikkim, triggering vociferous protests from lawyers there who opposed the move and threatened to boycott his court.

Dinakaran, facing impeachment proceedings in the Rajya Sabha following allegations of land grab and corruption, has refused to proceed on leave as advised by the collegium.

�As of now the Law Ministry has not received any collegium recommendation on transferring Justice Dinakaran. Justice Ghosh is assuming charge there tomorrow,� a senior ministry official said in Delhi.
