New Delhi, Sep 16 : Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said that he will go to Jammu and Kashmir, if required, to check whether allegations by a child rights activist that they are having difficulties in accessing the Jammu and Kashmir High Court are true.
A Bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi was hearing Enakshi Ganguly and Dr. Shanta Sinha on allegations relating to the “illegal detention of children in Kashmir and seeking judicial intervention in the matter”.
When the Chief Justice pointed out that this was a matter that the High Court can also see, Ganguly’s lawyer said, “It is difficult to go to the High Court.”
Chief Justice Gogoi replied, “Why is it difficult to go to the Jammu and Kashmir High Court? Is anyone coming in the way? We want to know from the (High Court) Chief Justice. If required, I will go to the Jammu and Kashmir High Court.”
