Bench to Mehra: There have been news and reports regarding the order for having having COVID facility for Judges. The order states request was made by the HC #Covid19 #DelhiHighCourt
Bench to Mehra: No such request was made by us. The meeting was regarding judges of Subordinate juridiciary, who have to go to Court. Two Judicial Officers have already died. #Covid19 #DelhiHighCourt
Justice Sanghi: All that we wanted was, in case they need admission, it may be provided. And that has been converted to such an order. #DelhiHighCourt
Justice Palli: You don’t have oxygen, and you are talking about having 100 beds facility for us. Its unfortunate.

Bench: That’s the problem. You are passing orders left right and centre.

Bench: Can we as an institution say that create a special facility for us? Will this not be blatantly discriminatory that people can’t get treatment and there is a facility in five star hotel for us?

Mehra: Media projections are done God knows how.

Bench: Media is not wrong, cos the order is wrong. You cannot create an exclusive facility like this. #Covid19
Mehra: we will look into it and respond to it.

Bench: You cannot make an exclusive facility like this for a class. The order is wrong. #Covid19 #DelhiHighCourt
Mehra: I’m aware that a request has also been placed before CJI for having a facility for lawyers, etc. if that facility comes, it will be for class of lawyers, and media can say why only for lawyers? #DelhiHighCourt
Mehra: Things are done in one different context and are blown out of proportion. Its done with good intention and not mala fide intention. #DelhiHighCourt
