Chennai: The All India Lawyers Union on Saturday said that lawyers viewed with extreme anguish Justice Srikrishna’s report on the February 19 incidents on the High Court premises not because it was “against the lawyers, but because no action has even been suggested against the police, despite several findings against them.”

In a statement, union president N.G.R.Prasad said at least the senior police officers should have been kept off duty till further enquiry was conducted by the High Court. Acting Chief Justice S.J.Mukhopadhaya would have handled the situation had the police not entered the scene. The report, without a logical follow-up of immediate action against erring police personnel, would lead to the establishment of a ‘police raj.’
