Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Front Page -

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Fri­day, for the first time, com­mented on the re­cent clash be­tween lawyers and Delhi Po­lice of­fi­cials at Tis Hazari court, ob­serv­ing there were prob­lems from both sides and that “no­body claps with one hand”. The Bar Coun­cil of In­dia said it has “put on hold” the lawyers’ strike in Delhi’s dis­trict courts for 10 days but threat­ened a na­tion­wide stir if no ac­tion is taken against po­lice of­fi­cers who were al­legedly in­volved in the clashes. Two new videos of last week’s clash be­tween the po­lice and lawyers sur­faced on so­cial me­dia on Fri­day. One of the videos pur­port­edly shows a se­nior wo­man po­lice of­fi­cer plead­ing with a crowd of lawyers as they charge to­wards her. It prompted the NCW to con­demn the in­ci­dent.
