Justice Mittal was till now the Acting Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court. On Saturday, Sindhu Sharma became the first woman judge of the Jammu and Kashmir HC.

An earlier recommendation of the Supreme Court collegium to appoint Justice Bose as the chief justice of the Delhi HC was turned down by the government, citing lack of experience of the judge to head a high-profile HC.
