Delhi district court lawyers on strike to­day

The Hitavada - - NATION -

THE lawyers of all six district courts in the na­tional cap­i­tal will go on a day-long strike on Fri­day to protest against al­leged mis­con­duct of some judges.

“The rea­sons for call­ing a com­plete strike are mis­con­duct of judges with lit­i­gants and huge cor­rup­tion in the ju­di­ciary. We have al­ready given the names of erring judges to the High Court but no ac­tion has been taken so far,” ad­vo­cate Jaiveer Singh Chauhan, Sec­re­tary Gen­eral of the Co-or­di­na­tion Com­mit­tee of Delhi bar as­so­ci­a­tions, said.

In a unan­i­mous res­o­lu­tion adopted by the Co-or­di­na­tion Com­mit­tee of all District Court Bar As­so­ci­a­tions here, it was al­leged that some judges were re­peat­edly mis­be­hav­ing with the lawyers by treat­ing them as sub­or­di­nates.

The strike is likely to paral­yse work in all six district courts at Pa­tiala House, Ro­hini, Saket, Tis Hazari, Dwarka and Karkar­dooma.

On Wed­nes­day, the lawyers at the Tis Hazari Court had also gone on a strike to protest against the al­leged “rude be­hav­iour” of a Mag­is­trate.

Ex­tend­ing the strike to all district courts on Fri­day, the co-or­di­na­tion com­mit­tee unan­i­mously “re­solved to ob­serve com­plete strike on Oc­to­ber 13 in all the district courts of Delhi to draw the at­ten­tion of ju­di­cial ad­min­is­tra­tion to take ac­tion against the erring judges so that the judges act in a ju­di­cious man­ner and not treat lawyers as their sub­or­di­nates.”
