Justice Akil Abdulhamid Kureshi, former Judge of the Gujarat and Bombay High Court, on Saturday took oath as the fifth Chief Justice of Tripura High Court. The new Chief Justice was sworn-in by Tripura Governor Ramesh Bais at a simple ceremony at the Durbar Hall of the old Raj Bhavan here.

The swearing-in ceremony was attended by Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, Deputy CM Jishnu Dev Varma, their cabinet colleagues, two other judges -- Subhashish Talapatra and Arindam Lodh. Leaders of different political parties, senior police officers, civil officials, and para-military officers were also present along with seven sitting judges of Bombay High Court and two sitting judges of Gujarat HC.
After keeping it pending for more than six months, the Department of Justice under the Union Ministry of Law and Justice last week notified the appointment of Justice Kureshi as CJ of the Tripura HC. Senior judge from the Gujarat HC, Justice Kureshi was serving as a judge of the Bombay High Court before his transfer to Tripura. 
In May this year, the SC collegium headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi had recommended Justice Kureshi’s elevation as CJ of the Madhya Pradesh HC, but the recommendation was not approved by the Department of Justice. After the collegium on September 5 passed a resolution saying the Centre had twice returned the proposal of elevation of Justice Kureshi to the Madhya Pradesh HC, the Gujarat High Advocates’ Association moved the apex court taking objection to the Centre’s reluctance on the appointment.
