Kotwali Shahar, Bulandshahar within a month from the date of the order.The office has been asked to do the needful. A compliance report has been instructed to be submitted by the Collector to the Registry of this Court within 2 months.It may be noted that on account of COVID-19, a nationwide lock down was imposed on March 25, and soon thereafter, the Supreme Court, High Courts and subordinate courts had to move to virtual hearings.Since then, across the country, courts at all levels have confined themselves to the hearing of urgent and important matters only.Recently, the Allahabad High Court had denied the option to an Advocate for hearing via video conferencing, citing “high risk” of Covid-19 infection.The Bench of Justice Vivek Agarwal told ASGI Sanjay Kumar Om that his request for virtual hearing cannot be allowed because the Computer Section of the High Court is the “high risk zone” for Covid-19 infection and hence no person from there can be allowed within the Court room/ chambers.Click here to download the Order Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
