Twelve judges of the Appellate Division and the High Court Division of Supreme Court have been infected with Covid-19.

Chief Justice Hasan Foez Siddique disclosed the information when court proceedings started on Monday morning.

Trial proceedings in many important benches have been suspended due to surge of Covid cases, said the Chief Justice. “If one of a double bench gets infected, the trial of that bench remains suspended.”

“In this case, if you do not cooperate, then it becomes difficult for us. Otherwise, we will have to reintroduce virtual judicial proceedings,” he added.
