Shillong, Sep 20 - Justice Prafulla Chandra Pant was Friday sworn in as chief justice of the Meghalaya High Court.

Chief Minister Mukul Sangma, Deputy Chief Minister in-charge of Law Rowell Lyngdoh and assembly Speaker Abu Taher Mondal were among those who attended the swearing-in ceremony.

My duty was to try to understand the problem of the people, particularly the ligitants, lawyers and stakeholders. I will try my best to do the needful to redress their grievances, Pant said later.
