Lawyers abstain from work over law and order situation in Delhi

Lawyers on Friday observed a complete strike in all six district courts in the national capital to protest against the law and order situation in Delhi after an attack on the residence of Shahdara Bar Association president.

Advocate Jaiveer Chauhan, secretary-general of the coordination committee of Delhi Bar Association, said the attack on the residence of Shahdara Bar Association president Pramod Nagar in Bhajanpura in northeast Delhi has raised security concerns, which is why lawyers collectively decided to abstain from work.

The strike hit judicial work in district courts at Patiala House, Tis Hazari, Saket, Rohini, Karkardooma and Dwarka. The lawyers, however, appeared for arguments in bail and custody cases.

“Nagar’s house was attacked with stones and several rounds of gun shots were fired at his house by 40-50 persons in retaliation to his request to four drunk persons not to make noise outside his residence late at night,” Chauhan said.

He said several rounds of gun shots fired fearlessly at someone’s house, showed their was no fear of law.
