The President has appointed Justices Sharad Kumar Gupta, Ram Prasanna Sharma and Arvind Singh Chandel as additional judges of the Chhattisgarh High Court for a period of six months. The tenure of the judges was to end on June 26, and the Collegium had decided to extend their tenure by six months with effect from June 27.
