TIRUCHI: Members of the Tiruchi Bar Association and Criminal Courts Advocates Association observed fast here on Friday condemning the brutal attack on the lawyers by the police at the Madras High Court last week.
The lawyers demanded the government to take immediate action against police officials directly involved in the attack and initiate criminal proceedings against each of them. The fast was led by the Tiruchi Bar Association president A. Pushparaj.
Members of various political parties under the banner of Sri Lankan Tamil Protection Movement were arrested on Friday for attempting to stage a demonstration condemning the attack on lawyers.
They were arrested as permission was not granted for the demonstration.
