Patna, Jun 7: Irked at the assault of lensmen by junior doctors of Patna Medical College Hospital (PMCH), lawyers today openly supported the photo journalists and announced not to take up the cases of the medics facing Non-Bailable Arrest Warrants (NBW).
In an emergent meeting here, the district bar association dubbed the incident as 'inhuman' and 'unfortunate'.
Association Secretary Arvind Kumar told UNI that the lawyers unanimously decided not to file the anticipatory bail application or any other matter of the junior doctors in question.
