Cameras also showed lawyers pushing and beating up a journalist who works with a media house while police remained mute spectator.

"When I took a photo of the scuffle, the lawyers started beating me up. I can identify him," said Tariq Anwar, of Firstpost.

"There were two groups, pro-Kanhaiya & anti-Kanhaiya group. A person from anti-Kanhaiya group beat me up. Police was a mute spectator like yesterday. I have photos to prove," Tariq Anwar added.

Meanwhile lawyers protesting outside the Patiala House court said they didn't beat up anyone.

"We did not do anything, we did not beat any one up," group of lawyers told media persons.

Earlier on Monday, a similar brawl took place at the Delhi court after about 40 lawyers present inside the court shouted slogans against the Jawaharlal Nehru University asking the institute's faculty to leave the court.

The lawyers, heard shouting 'Bharat mata ki jai' and 'Vande Mataram', also attacked students and the media personalities present at the court premises.
