 Allahabad High Court
Allahabad, Sep 8: Terming the blast at Delhi High Court as "an attack on judiciary itself", advocates of the Allahabad High Court on Wednesday abstained from judicial work as a mark of protest.

As the news of the blast reached here, an emergency meeting of the High Court Bar Association was called where the lawyers, led by the association's senior vice-president Daya Shankar Mishra and secretary Anil Tiwari, passed a resolution.

"We condemn the Delhi blast, which is an attack on judiciary itself," the resolution said.

It also extended condolences to the families who lost their beloved ones in the blast.

Meanwhile, in a statement issued here, former Advocate General of Uttar Pradesh and ex-Chairman of the UP Minorities Commission S M A Kazmi said "this incident should not be used as an opportunity to get political mileage".

Terming the blast as "an act of cowardice", Kazmi emphasised upon removing "infirmities in security measures" and demanded "those responsible for the laxity should be brought to book".
