A Youth Congress worker from Thrissur, on Wednesday, moved a petition before Advocate General K.P. Dandapani seeking his permission to file a contempt of court petition against A. Jayasankar, general secretary, Indian Association of Lawyers.

The petition was filed by Saneesh Kumar. According to him, a statement in a letter sent to Chief Justice Manjula Chellur amounted to contempt of court. The association, in a letter, had urged the Chief Justice to take stringent action against High Court Registry officials responsible for numbering an appeal filed by the State government against a single-judge verdict quashing the land assignment case registered against Leader of the Opposition V.S. Achuthanandan without insisting on a certified copy of the verdict.
