Arup Kumar Goswami from Assam was on Wednesday sworn in as the Chief Justice of Andhra Pradesh High Court.

Governor Biswabhusan Harichandan administered the oath of office to Justice Goswami at a brief function in Vijayawada.

Justice Goswami, who was previously the Chief Justice of Sikkim High Court, was last week transferred as the Chief Justice of AP in the place of Justice JK Maheshwari, who was shifted to Sikkim.
