New Delhi: During a hearing in the Supreme Court on Tuesday, Chief Justice NV Ramana told a lawyer that 13 judges of the top court were infected with Covid-19 and so were 400 registry staff.
“Thirteen judges of the court are infected with Covid-19 and 400 registry staff are also positive,” he said.
The Chief Justice said this when the lawyer complained that his matter wasn’t listed for urgent hearing by the Supreme Court Registry.
“If you don’t know the problems, what can we do,” the Chief Justice asked.
He said that though “our bodies are not cooperating, still we are working”. He added: “Please try to understand this.”
