“We condemn the attack on three judicial officers of Saket court complex,” said Kuldeep Sehrawat, chairman of the district courts bar association coordination committee.

What will be the condition of common masses, he asked, when city judges are not safe, he asked.

Madan Lal, president, Saket Court Bar Association, said government must provide proper security to judicial officers. He said that one of the arrested person involved in this case was also named in four other cases.

The strike paralysed the work at all six city courts– Saket, Patiala House, Tis Hazari, Karkardooma, Rohini and Dwarka.

Metropolitan Magistrate Ajay Garg, Additional Sessions Judge M.K. Nagpal and Additional District Judge Inderjeet Singh were attacked by four young men on two motorbikes Thursday.
