Following the dramatic shootout in Delhi’s Rohini Court on Friday, lawyers abstained from work in all district courts in Delhi on Saturday.
According to Sanjeev Nasiar, the spokesperson of Coordination Committee of all District Courts Bar Associations in Delhi, no work took place in the district courts, except urgent matters such as bail and custody extension, as the lawyers did not appear before judges.
On Friday, the strike was called by the committee seeking modification of security norms inside all the seven district courts premises here.
“The courts, however, passed orders and judgments that were already scheduled for Saturday,” said Nasiar.
A team of lawyers also met the commissioner of police on Saturday and discussed matters related to security, Nasiar said.
Advocate Manjeet Mathur, the secretary of Rohini District Courts Bar Association, said that the strike was peaceful and no information regarding any unpleasant incident was received from any of the seven courts premises.
The advocates also did not take part in any virtual or physical hearings in other district courts - Rouse Avenue, Tis Hazari, Dwarka, Saket and Karkardooma.
