Kohima: As a six-member delegation of the High Court bar (Kohima bench) met with Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana in Delhi on Tuesday, they received a nod for Nagaland to have a separate high court, provided that the state has required infrastructure in place.
During the meeting, the delegation requested the CJI’s help in setting up a separate high court for Nagaland.

The CJI added that a team will be sent to Nagaland for inspection of the infrastructure.
