Supreme Court judge Justice DY Chandrachud has tested positive for COVID-19.
A staff member of the judge had also tested positive earlier. It is learnt that the judge is recovering well.
As Chairperson of the Supreme Court E-committee, Justice Chandrachud has been instrumental in ensuring that courts across the country function virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The case will not be heard on Thursday now.
In April, four judges of the Supreme Court had tested positive for COVID-19, with one of the judges requiring hospitalisation for the same.
