Gujarat HC initiates PIL, flags Covid 'emergency' on its own

Apr 12, 2021 10:20 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The Gujarat High Court on Sunday initiated a suo motu PIL over the coronavirus situation after observing that media reports on the pandemic indicate that the state was heading towards a "health emergency of sorts".

Chief Justice Vikram Nath said that "news channels are flooded with the harrowing tales, unfortunate and unimaginable difficulties and unmanageable conditions of the infrastructure".

Nath, through an oral order, directed the high court registry to register a fresh suo motu PIL. This is the second such PIL registered by the state high court on coronavirus situation.
