Kanpur: Kanpur Nagar district court remained closed on Friday as an advocate was found corona positive on Thursday. The decision for the 24-hour closure was taken on the recommendation of the chief medical officer. The court will now reopen on Monday.
Distinct judge Ashok Kumar Singh (IIIrd) in his order, which was passed on August 13, had stated that as per recommendation of the CMO and Covid protocol, the court would remain closed on Friday. The judicial official in his order stated that the CMO has said in his letter that if any worker was found infected at a work place and his report confirmed it, then the work place must be closed for 24 hours and sanitized twice during the closure period.
Apart from it, if any person comes in contact with the infected person within one meter for 15 minutes, then he must be quarantined for 14 days. The CMO had enclosed the government order to this effect and had suggested to close the courts of ACMM (Ist), ACMM (VIIth), sessions court no. 21 and Kanpur Bar Association for 24 hours and have them sanitized twice. This report was also sent to the DM and the SSP.
The CMO report clearly stated that the infected advocate of Kalyanpur had visited the Kanpur Bar Association and the three courts. “The CMO had advised to close the three courts and Kanpur Bar Association for 24 hours. But in my opinion, Kanpur Bar and court building are in the same premises, therefore, it would be fair to close the entire court premises and it should be sanitized twice during this period. Therefore, the Kanpur court would remain closed on August 14,” the district judge had observed.
He also stated in his order that sanitization of the court premises would be the liability of the district magistrate and municipal commissioner/city health officer. Officer in-charge of ‘nazarat’ will report him and ensure the effective execution of the CMO’s order.
Further, all bail applications and cases listed for August 14 would be heard on August 17 and the remaining other cases would be heard on October 9. A copy of this order be sent to the CMO and municipal commissioner for sanitization of Kanpur court.
The district judgealso mentioned in his order that the CMO had informed him that advocate Dinesh Kumar Shukla, who’s the president of The Lawyers Association, had informed him about the infected advocate. Therefore, necessary steps were taken in this regard.
