Attack on judges: Delhi lawyers observe strike
New Delhi, May 18 (IANS) Protesting the attack on three judges by bike-borne men in yet another incident of road rage in the capital, lawyers in all the six district courts of Delhi Friday observed a one-day strike, paralysing legal work, a lawyers' body said.
"We condemn the attack on three judicial officers of Saket court complex," said Kuldeep Sehrawat, chairman of the district courts bar association coordination committee.
What will be the condition of common masses, he asked, when city judges are not safe, he asked.
Madan Lal, president, Saket Court Bar Association, said government must provide proper security to judicial officers. He said that one of the arrested person involved in this case was also named in four other cases.
The strike paralysed the work at all six city courts-- Saket, Patiala House, Tis Hazari, Karkardooma, Rohini and Dwarka.
Metropolitan Magistrate Ajay Garg, Additional Sessions Judge M.K. Nagpal and Additional District Judge Inderjeet Singh were attacked by four young men on two motorbikes Thursday.
Metropolitan Magistrate Ajay Garg and driver Chaman Lal were hospitalized with head injuries after the bikers rained bricks on their windscreen soon after the judge's car grazed one of the motorcycles, toppling two men.
The incident occurred at Dakshinpuri when the judges were returning home from the nearby Saket court, police said.
