Committees should be consituted within two months, High Court Chief Justices told.

The apex court asked Chief Justices and Acting Chief Justices of High Courts to constitute the committee with “quiet promptitude”. The court directed that the Registrar Generals of the High Courts should file compliance reports on or before July 15. The issue would be taken up suo motu by the apex court in case the committees were not constituted by the stipulated date.

The order came in the backdrop of the alleged assault and manhandling of a woman lawyer by her male colleagues at the Tis Hazari courts in the national capital. She had appeared for a client while the lawyers were on a boycott.
