Lawyers’ strike to go on as meeting with cops draws no result

New Delhi, November 10

The lawyers’ strike would continue as a meeting, held on the orders of the Delhi High Court after the lawyers-cops clash, between the members of all district courts associations, representatives of Delhi Police and Lt Governor Anil Baijal on Sunday failed to bring out any resolution, the coordination committee general secretary said.

“Despite our cooperation, no concrete step has been taken to arrest the cops who opened fire at advocates, so there would be complete abstinence from work with all peaceful modes in all Delhi district courts,” said Dhir Singh Kasana, general secretary of the coordination committee of All District Courts Bar Associations.

However, the police said during the discussion at the Lt Governor’s residence, it was explained by them that since the judicial inquiry is under way, further action should be taken against any of the alleged persons only on the basis of the outcome of the inquiry.

The L-G also appealed to both police and lawyers to continue holding talks to resolve the issues amicably, they said.
