Allahabad High Court refuses virtual hearing

Risk of Covid infection from the computer division personal of the court resulted to stop hearing by video conferencing in the Allahabad High Court. The court has said that the computer section was a high risk zone and it would not be safe if any personnel from that department had to physically monitor the video conference.

The court denied a request for a hearing via video conferencing, stressing that there was no additional infrastructure in the Chamber (of the judge) to enable a virtual hearing.

The Court was of the view that request for taking the case through Video Conferencing cannot be entertained for a while.
