Plea seeks action against advocates

A petition before the Delhi High Court has sought action against advocates who allegedly thrashed litigants, policemen and the general public during the strike in district courts following a clash between lawyers and police.

A Bench of Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice C. Hari Shankar, however, on Wednesday said that issues between the police and lawyers were being resolved at present and posted the case for hearing on February 11, 2020.

The petition by Ajay Gautam, a social activist, has alleged that protesting lawyers stopped litigants from entering court premises. The petition has further claimed that the continuing strike in district courts is disrupting judicial proceedings in the subordinate courts.
