COVID SURGE: Gauhati HC extends interim orders by two weeks
Gauhati High Court has further extended all interim orders passed by it and all other subordinate Courts and Tribunals by two weeks, in view of the COVID-19 situation.
The order was issued on Monday after a full bench of the High Court was dealing with the suo motu PIL instituted by the Court owing to the daily surge of cases during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“...In the interest of justice, the order dated 10.05.2021 may be extended for a further period of at least two weeks. We are also of the considered view that under the present circumstances, the order should be extended. Accordingly, the order dated 10.05.2021 is hereby extended for a further period of two weeks i.e. till 15.06.2021,” the order said.
The High Court had further extended its previous order dated May 10, wherein it had extended the interim orders passed by it, its outlying Benches and other subordinate Courts and Tribunals till June 1, 2021.
The Court had further said that interim bails, anticipatory bail expiring in this period shall stand extended till May 31.
