The court judge refused to allow a lawyer to defend his case in court. The reason for this is that the lawyer does not wear a mask. The Mumbai High Court has ruled that a lawyer is not allowed to argue while wearing a mask. The decision was taken by Prithviraj Chavan, a single bench judge of the High Court. However during a trial in court the lawyer removed his mask and agreed to hear the arguments. Noticing this, Justice Chavan immediately refused to hear the case and announced another new date. Courts have been hearing cases online since the lockdown.
However, with the decline of corona cases, the courts have been hearing the cases recently. Even during the trial, the courts continue to prosecute in compliance with corona rules. At the same time it was decided to follow the rules of the corona. According to the SOPS, it is mandatory for everyone in court, including lawyers, to wear a mask. Justice Prithviraj Chavan said that only those involved in the case should be in the courtroom during the trial and all the other lawyers should stay in the next room and wait for their turn. He said that even the senior judges in the court must wear masks while the subordinates are arguing during the trial of the cases.
That’s not all the troubles Corona brought. Corona is eventually having a serious impact on the court as well. Meanwhile, corona cases have been on the rise in Mumbai recently. In Maharashtra, the government is also imposing more restrictions on corona building. Authorities in Mumbai are imposing heavy fines on those who do not wear masks. Lockdown restrictions are in place in many areas, however. Curfew is imposed at night. Corona cases are declining in the country but in many states the spread of corona is severe.
