DAVANGERE: Advocates of Davangere city boycotted the first Junior Magistrate First Class court on Friday demanding the transfer of the first JMFC Judge Shivakumar.

The advocates, who decided yesterday to boycott court proceedings, expressed resentment over the stand taken by the judge in case relating to the arrest of advocate Siddalingappa.

Siddalingappa was refused bail and was remanded in judicial custody a few days ago in a case in which he was alleged to have produced fake documents.
