Kanpur, Aug 26: Three advocates, including election officer Amresh Chand Mishra, were wounded in a clash between two groups of lawyers in Bar Association premises at the district court compound here.

According to reports, Mr Ganesh Dixit was elected as the president of the Kanpur Bar Association last week.

The rival groups were opposing this, allegeing that the election was invalid as only 16.8 per cent advocates had cast their votes.

The rival group members started raising slogans and vandalised the furniture of the Bar Association during the oath ceremony today.

Later, they also thrashed some advocates.

Amresh, Santosh Tiwari and Shivendra sustained wounds in the incident and were rushed to Urshala hospital.

Police was yet to make any arrest in this connection.

Meanwhile, posse of policemen have been deployed at the court compound to avoid any fresh violence.

Investigation was on.
