Chief Justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court, Justice Kumari Gita Mittal on Tuesday said that during her stint on the top judicial chair, she will try her best to deliver justice to all.

“I will work in the J&K High Court with true spirit and try my best to deliver justice to all as per the merit of the cases,” she said.

The Chief Justice, justice Gita Mittal, justice Sindhu Sharma and justice Rashid Ali Dar were here to attend a program organised by the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association of Jammu (JKHCBAJ) to welcome the trio.     

Justice Kumari Gita Mital is first woman Chief Justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court, while justice Sindhu Sharma is first woman practicing lawyer and justice Rashid Ali Dar is a senior judge of district judiciary who has been elevated as High Court judge.

The Judges who were present at the function were justice D S Thakur, justice Sanjeev Kumar, justice Sanjay Kumar Gupta, former judges, justice K K Gupta, justice G D Sharma and B L Bhat besides advocate general D C Raina.

Divisional commissioner, Jammu Sanjeev Verma, DIG Jammu-Kathua-Samba range, Bhim Sen Tuti, deputy commissioner, Jammu Ramesh Kumar, municipal commissioner Arvind Kotwal, commandant CRPF Asheesh Kumar Jha and senior judicial officers also attended the welcome function.

Addressing the function, justice Mittal said that she is overwhelmed with this welcome function and will cherish these memories for rest of her life.

She informed that she has designed a mechanism for vulnerable witness court room projects in Delhi trial court initially and later, Delhi became the first city to have the witness protection set-up.

“I designed this to provide protection, privacy, confidentiality and comfort to vulnerable witnesses in an in-camera atmosphere in sexual offences cases, as it is very difficult for the victim to stand with the accused and narrate the incidence in front of him which is a worse thing for the victim to explain,” the Chief Justice maintained.

She said that a detailed report pertaining to deficiency in infrastructure in the court premises in different district and mufassil courts has been called from the Registrar General of the High Court and dedicated effort will be put in to resolve the issues regarding judicial officer, advocates and litigants besides infrastructural deficiencies in remote districts.

Speaking on the occasion, president Jammu Bar Association, B S Slathia welcomed the Chief Justice and other two newly elevated judges of the High Court and expressed his pleasure on calling of first lady Judge as Chief Justice and justice Sindhu Sharma as first lady judge from the members of the J&K High Court Bar Association.

He expressed his gratitude to the Chief Justice for being very respectful to the members of the bar.

He also thanked the officers of the administration and all judicial officers from the district judiciary for attending the welcome  function.
