The incident occurred in the morning when Krishna’s lawyer Praveen Rai and his local aide F.C. Sharma were proceeding to towards the special magistrate (Central Bureau of Investigation - CBI) court.
Senior lawyer Bhartendu Sharma said: “As the lawyers here had announced a strike in Ghaziabad courts, the two were intercepted and their papers were torn.”
