Union Minister for Law and Justice, Kiren Rijiju reassured advocates from Kohima to retake the issue of having a separate high court of Nagaland with PM Modi.

Delegation of advocates have also requested the Union Minister to rise the issue before the Parliament during the monsoon season.

Recently Chief Minister of Nagaland Neiphiu Rio met the former law minister Shri Ravishankar Prasad and others in New Delhi for a High Court in Nagaland.

According to Morung Express report, Nagaland, the second-oldest state of Northeast has been operating as a bench in Kohima under the Gauhati High Court since 1972.

Since then, the state has been demanding to operate all its legal issues via a separate High Court.

But with lack of facilities and improper infrastructure, it failed to attain so.

The state government is now planning to establish a separate High Court in an old existing complex of Kohima Bench.

Rijiju further informed that all relevant documents have been submitted by the state government.
