The alleged attacker was arrested two hours after the incident, police said. The agitating lawyers warned police of an indefinite strike if adequate security was not provided.

A lawyer was stabbed in his chamber in the Meerut district court Wednesday, following which his colleagues staged a demonstration and surrounded the SSP’s office alleging delay in police action.

The alleged attacker was arrested two hours after the incident, police said. The agitating lawyers warned police of an indefinite strike if adequate security was not provided.

Police said lawyer Shailendra Singh (45), a resident of Gyanpur village in Meerut, was sitting at his chamber when one Sonu Singh (24) entered. Sonu then allegedly had an argument with the lawyer and stabbed him on his head. The injured lawyer was rushed to a nearby private nursing home and later to the district hospital, police said.

Sonu managed to escape when the other lawyers rushed to rescue Shailendra, police said.
