Hamarsan Singh Thangkhiew sworn in as judge of Meghalaya HC
Hamarsan Singh Thangkhiew on Monday scripted history by becoming the first tribal Khasi advocate to be sworn in as a judge of the Meghalaya High Court.
Thangkhiew, who was designated a Senior Advocate by the Gauhati High Court in 2010, practised mainly civil and constitutional law.
He completed his schooling from St Edmund's, graduated from St Edmund's College with honours in Economics (1987) and completed his Bachelor of Legislative Law from Delhi University in 1990.
With Thangkhiew taking oath on Monday, the number of judges in the Meghalaya High Court has gone up to three -- including Chief Justice Mir and Justice Sen.
