NEW DELHI: The condition of noted criminal defence lawyer Pandit R. K. Naseem, who was hit on the head during a scuffle in Dabri here on Sunday, continues to be critical.

“He has not regained consciousness. He is under observation and the next 24 hours are crucial,” said Mr. Nadeem’s nephew Vivek, an engineer, on Monday.

The 65-year-old lawyer is involved in a legal dispute with his brother-in-law and former MLA Vinod Sharma and had gone to the latter’s auto-parts factory in Dabri in the morning when the incident took place.
