Agartala: Two newly appointed judges of the Tripura High Court, Sabyasachi Datta Purkayastha and Biswajit Palit, were formally sworn in during a simple oath-taking ceremony at the High Court premises on Thursday.
All the senior advocates, members of the Bar, government-empaneled advocates, and officials serving in the state’s judicial administration were present on the occasion.
Chief Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh administered the oath of office and secrecy to the newly appointed judges.
