Delhi district courts lawyers are still firm on their stand of not going back to work as their demand of arresting the police personnel who ‘allegedly’ fired shots at their colleagues has not been fulfilled. The incident took place on the 2nd of November.
Earlier on 5th of November, Delhi Police protested in front of Police Headquarters in Delhi where thousands of police personnel including both men and women for 11 hours as no action was taken against Lawyers.
According to the statement made by Dhir Singh Kasana, General Secretary Coordination Committee of All District Courts Bar Association, Delhi district courts’ today, lawyers protested by marching from Patiala House Court to India gate today.
He added ‘Despite our cooperation, no concrete step has been taken to arrest the police personnel who fired at advocates. So, there would be a complete abstinence from work at all Delhi district courts. Our demand was that the police officers who fired at advocates be arrested. The police officials opposed it. So we will continue boycotting work’.
The strike from lawyers could not come to an end as in a meeting held on Sunday between Lt. Governor Anil Baijal, Delhi Police officials, and the members of All District Courts Bar Association could not find a mutual resolution.
On the 2nd of November several advocates and police personnel were found being involved in fracas over parking disagreement in which at least 20 policemen and numerous advocated sustained injuries.
Lawyers from 6 district courts in Delhi are on strike displaying their protest owing to the dispute with Delhi Police.
