Sr Adv Pinky Anand appointed ASG in SC

Senior advocate and BJP spokesperson Pinky Anand was appointed Additional Solicitor General (ASG) in the Supreme Court and she assumed office yesterday, reported The Hindu.

The former Additional Advocate General of Uttarakhand is only the second woman ever to be appointed ASG. The first – Indira Jaising – demitted office after change of government in May.

Bar Council Member S Prabhakaran, senior advocates NR Chandran, G Rajagopalan and former Karnataka Advocate-General Uday Holla are meanwhile contenders for two posts of Additional Advocate General to the Madras high court.

Six senior advocates were appointed ASG in the Supreme Court on 7 June: L Nageswara Rao, Paramjit Patwalia, Maninder Singh, Tushar Mehta, Neeraj Kishan Kaul and PS Narsimha.
