Delhi district lawyers strike workApril 29th, 2009 - 9:36 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 29 (IANS) Lawyers of district courts in the capital Wednesday abstained from work to protest what they termed as arrogant and unwarranted action of a judicial officer who had asked the police to remove two advocates from the courtroom for alleged misbehaviour.
“All lawyers abstained from work in all district courts. Work in most of the district courts remained affected,” Delhi Bar Association secretary Jaiveer Singh Chauhan said.
The lawyers’ forum Tuesday gave a call for abstention from courts to protest the action taken by an Additional District Judge at the Dwarka courts against a member of the Delhi Bar Association.
The incident took place when a lawyer during arguments in a matrimonial case raised his pitch, prompting the judge to call police to take him out of the court.
