Justice Mohammad Yaqoob Mir was sworn in as the new Chief Justice of the Meghalaya High Court on Monday.

Meghalaya Governor Ganga Prasad administered the oath of office and secrecy to the new Chief Justice at the Durbar Hall of the Raj Bhavan at 4 pm.

The office of the Chief Justice of Meghalaya High Court fell vacant following retirement of Justice Tarun Agarwala and consequently the working Judge-strength stands reduced to only one against the total Judge-strength of four.

The Supreme Court Collegium recommended Justice Mohammad Yaqoob Mir for appointment as the new Chief Justice of Meghalaya High Court. Justice Mir is the senior-most Judge from Jammu & Kashmir High Court and has been serving there since his elevation as a Judge of that High Court in November 2007.
