Tis Hazari court lawyers to abstain from work tomorrow

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Lawyers of a district here today decided to abstain from judicial work tomorrow in protest against alleged "rude behaviour" of a magistrate.

The Bar Association, which represents lawyers of Tis Hazari here, has called for a complete strike and said advocates would not engage in any work, including bail and stay proceedings, typing or attestation.

Advocate Ikrant Sharma, vice president of the lawyers' body, said, "Action will be taken against any advocate appearing before any during the strike."

The executive committee of the Bar Association in its meeting today decided to "boycott" the metropolitan magistrate in protest against his "rude behaviour".

The lawyers alleged that incident took place today in Tis Hazari court when the magistrate, while hearing a complaint case, was requested by a junior counsel to pass over the matter as the main advocate was busy in another case.

The magistrate allegedly did not consider the request and dismissed the complaint case, they claimed.

The lawyer concerned then filed a complaint with the seeking action against the magistrate.
