Justice Satish Chandra Sharma took oath as the Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court.

Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena administered the oath to the 60-year-old Justice Sharma at a ceremony in the Raj Niwas, the L-G’s secretariat.

Justice Sharma had earlier served as the chief justice of the Telangana High Court.
