Imphal, Sep 14(ANI): All courts in Manipur, including the Imphal bench of Gauhati High Court, had recently ceased work to protest against a petrol bomb blast inside the district and sessions judge court complex in Imphal.
The incident took place on August 27, when a petrol bomb hurled by some unknown persons exploded inside the Cheirap court complex.
However, no one was injured in the explosion as the complex was deserted at that time.
"I feel really bad. The court is a temple of justice and everybody expects justice from the court, but unnecessarily it should not be disturbed. If we are disturbed, how can we run the court?" said S. Jayenta Kumar Singh, a senior Advocate.
K. Manorama, another advocate, condemned the attack, and said: "We don't want such incidents to happen again. This is a very bad and uncivilized. Throwing a bomb is not a solution to anything. We want to ask if this will help address their concerns. This is really shocking and we condemn the incident."
Meanwhile, in an emergency meeting of the All Manipur Judicial Officers' Association, it was resolved to press the state government's law enforcing agencies to take up measures to ensure safety at the court complexes to prevent the repetition of such incidents in future. (ANI)
