In a remarkable achievement, 25-year-old Esampelli Sai Shiva, whose father works as a newspaper agent in Naspur mandal centre, has secured the position of junior civil judge in his very first attempt at cracking a two-phased examination (preliminary and mains) and one of the most challenging interviews. As a result of his success, he has become an inspiration for aspiring young people in the district who wish to pursue a career in law.
“I’ve had a passion for legal matters since childhood, and I’ve chosen to become a judge because it allows me to be a fair mediator between the victim and accused. My priority will be to quickly resolve cases while ensuring justice for the victims. I’m thrilled to take on this position in the court,” Shiva shared with ‘Telangana Today.’
Currently, Shiva practices law at a court in Ranga Reddy district and is pursuing a post-graduate degree in law, specifically a Master of Legislative Law (LLM), at the University College of Law at Osmania University. He completed his schooling in Mancherial and went on to study Intermediate at a private college in Hyderabad before earning his Bachelor of Law (LLB) from Mahatma Gandhi Law College, Hyderabad.
Damerla Preethi from Mandamarri town, daughter of a private school correspondent, has secured a place on the shortlist for the junior civil judge position. Impressively, she landed the job on her first attempt at just 25 years old. Preethi attributes her success to the unwavering support of her parents and the inspiration she drew from her father, Siddaiah, who is renowned for his commitment to providing high-quality education to students in the coal belt town. Alongside Preethi, Sai Shiva was also selected for the role from the Telangana judiciary department’s recruitment examination, which yielded 41 new judges, and the results were announced on March 23.
