NEWDELHI: Justice Ranjan Gogoi was sworn in as Supreme Court judge on Monday, taking the number of judges in the court to 27 as against the approved strength of 31.

Chief Justice of India S H Kapadia administered the oath of office to Justice Gogoi, the former chief justice of the High Court of Punjab and Haryana, at the Chief Justice Court Hall in the presence of several advocates and law officers.

Gogoi is the second judge to be elevated to the apex court this month. Justice Fakir Muhammad Ibrahim Kalifulla of the Jammu and Kashmir High Court was made a Supreme Court judge on April 2. Justice Gogoi, who hails from Dibrugarh district in Assam, is the son of former state chief minister Keshab Gogoi. He reportedly received the warrant of appointment for the new post last week. Born on November 18, 1954, Justice Gogoi joined the Bar in 1978.
