A city-based journalist and a Customs officer posted were among a group of people who were felicitated for their contribution towards society by an association providing legal aid to the needy. All India Legal Aid Forum (AILAF), a countrywide association of activists providing legal aid to the people in need, concluded its two-day-long 17th annual conference at Constitution Club in New Delhi yesterday. During the conference, AILAF honoured a group of people from across the country, including some from Mumbai, for contribution in their chosen fields, the association said in a statement here. Retired Supreme Court Judge and Chairman of Press Council of India Justice C K Prasad and former Acting Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court Amitabh Lala, among others, feted these people. Mushtak Khan, a city-based journalist, and Deputy Commissioner (Customs) Prashant Kumar Sinha were among others from Mumbai who were honoured at the hands of Prasad. AILAF was founded in 1979 to provide legal aid to men and women in need to ensure they get justice, the statement added.
