Chitradurga: Expressing solidarity with advocates in Tamil Nadu, members of the Bar Association here attended court proceedings by wearing red bands, condemning the recent attacks on their counterparts by the Chennai police. The association condemned the lathi-charge on advocates there stating that it was undemocratic. The members sought stringent legal action against police personnel who ordered the lathi-charge, in which some vehicles were also damaged. Terming the police action “atrocious”, the association asked the Central Government to ensure safety of advocates across the country.
