Jammu and Kashmir High Court Chief Justice F.M. Ibrahim Kalifulla was on Monday sworn in as Supreme Court judge. Chief Justice of India S.H. Kapadia administered the oath of office to him at a function in the presence of the Full Court and members of the Bar.

Second Tamilian

Justice Kalifulla, who hails from Tamil Nadu, will be the second judge to represent the Madras High Court in the Supreme Court after Justice P. Sathasivam.

In February 2011, Justice Kalifulla was transferred as judge of the Jammu and Kashmir High Court. He became its acting Chief Justice in April 2011 and regular Chief Justice in September 2011. He will have a tenure of little over four years in the Supreme Court, where the number of judges has now gone up to 26 as against the sanctioned strength of 31.
