DHC gives bar association 2 weeks to sort out judge-lawyer row
New Delhi, Mar 2 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today granted two weeks to the Delhi High Court Bar Association (DHCBA) to peacefully settle the row involving two women advocates and Justice Shiv Narayan Dhingra.
A division bench comprising Justice Vijender Jain and Justice S N Agarwal, granted two weeks to the DHCBA. Senior counsel and President of DHCBA A S Chandiok looked into the matter to end the row.
Navratan Chowdhury, a woman advocate, had earlier moved the Delhi High Court, challenging the refusal of police to register an FIR against Justice Dhingra on charges of outraging her modesty.
Justice Dhingra, last month, when officiating as District and Sessions Judge in the Tis Hazari Court, had used foul language against her and another woman advocate in the open court room while dealing with a case, she had alleged.
The HC had earlier asked the DHCBA to sort out the problem amicably, with the HC Judge refraining to pass any order.
Justice Dhingra, the then District and Sessions Judge at the Tis Hazari Court, has recently been elevated to a Judge of the Delhi High Court.
