Press release on stopping the lawyers from entering the city
The Bar Association has taken a very serious note of this fact that on today i.e., 23.11.2012 undeclared curfew was imposed in the city and the lawyers, litigants and court staff were stopped from entering the city in order to attend their professional duty. This unwarranted action of the police was brought to the notice of Chief Justice of High Court through Register General and the Secretary of the Bar Association informed the Hon’ble Justice Verinder Singh in the open court about the said act, but no notice was taken by the Hon’ble High court. This show the high handedness of the police and virtually the judicial wing was stopped to function in the whole city.
