Delhi District Bar Coordination Committee on Friday announced to call off its strike which began against the clashes between lawyers and cops at Tis Hazari Court Complex on November 2 over a parking issue which snowballed into violence.
This comes two days after the Bar Council of India directed the protesting lawyers to resume work. The lawyers announced to resume work from Saturday after a general meeting on the matter in a Delhi court today.
“We respect the order of Hon’ble High Court so the abstinence from work is suspended, work to be resumed from Saturday. We thank all the members for their cooperation,” the Delhi District Bar Coordination Committee chief Mahaveer Sharma said in a statement.
Dhir Singh Kasana, Secretary-General of the Committee, said, “Our fight for Advocates Protection Act will continue.”
On November 2, Delhi Police personnel and lawyers had clashed in Tis Hazari court complex wherein over 21 police personnel and eight lawyers were injured.
The Delhi High Court had on November 3 ordered a judicial inquiry into the Tis Hazari violence within six weeks.
