Lawyers' cease-work strike

The Orissa High Court Bar Association Friday expelled three senior advocates from the body and showcaused the Bar Council of Odisha (BCO) chairman for their alleged attempt to weaken the ongoing statewide lawyers’ agitation.

The lawyers under the banner of the Bar Association have been on indefinite strike since August 29 following the alleged assault on a colleague at Nuabazar here on the previous day.

They have been demanding the arrest of the policemen involved in the assault.

“The General Body of the Association on the day resolved to suspend the membership of Senior Advocate Asim Amitav Dash, Milan Kanungo and Banshidhar Satapathy.

“Since (BCO chairman Dr Tahali Charan) Mohanty has already tendered an apology, he has been issued a notice to show cause as to why his membership from the Association shall not be suspended,” said Association Secretary Satyabrata Mohanty.

The Association resolved to continue the agitation till November 9, the date fixed by the High Court to hear all the three writ petitions pertaining to the lawyer-police strife arising out of the August 28 incident.
