Remand & bail cases to be heard, advocates can request urgent hearing
In view of the rising cases of Covid-19 in the state, the Uttarakhand high court registrar general Dhananjay Chaturvedi issued a notification on Saturday announcing a holiday in all subordinate courts in the state from May 3 to 16. Now, all the district and other subordinate courts will reopen and resume hearing of cases from May 17.
During the holiday period only those cases which are related to remand and bail will be taken up for hearing. For the hearing of important cases during this period, the advocates concerned can request for hearing of uncommon condition cases on the e-mail of the district court. The e-mail addresses of the district judges will be displayed on the official website. The district judges will appoint judicial officers on the website, who can be contacted by the advocates for information. The district judges will decide if any cases need to be taken up for hearing immediately. Such cases will be sent to the court for hearing. From May 17, the subordinate courts will undertake works related to remand, bail and temporary prohibition via video conferencing.
