The Delhi High Court has agreed to hear a PIL for giving directions to the Centre and the LG to fill the post of a judge at the Saket district courts lying vacant since January this year.

The petition said that hearings related to several family conflicts were getting adjourned as the post of principal judge responsible for family disputes from Delhi's south-east district was unoccupied.

A bench of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar said it will hear the petition in October.

Filed by two law students, Yashasavi Singh and Sharique Firoz, the plea said that access to speedy justice would be denied if the position was not filled up soon.

The law students told the court that they came to know about the situation from one of the clients of the law firm where they were interns.
