Justice G C Gupta sworn-in as the Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court by West Bengal Governor
Lamenting that Justice Gupta would have a short tenure as Chief Justice of the High Court as he is due to retire in December, Mitra said "I am, however, confident that Chief Justice Gupta will play T-20 (cricket match) with as much aplomb as a Test match." Justice Gupta was born on December one, 1954. He was enrolled as an Advocate on September 20, 1982 and practised in the Calcutta High Court for 17 years in civil, constitutional, company, arbitration and commercial matters. He was appointed as a permanent judge of the Calcutta High Court on September 15, 2000.
