Delhi lawyers strike work
New Delhi, Mar 28 (UNI) Thousands of lawyers practising in the Delhi High Court and three district courts today struck work and refrained from appearing before the Judges, expressing solidarity with the striking advocates of the Tis Hazari district court.
The Justices, Judges and court officials came to the courts, but the advocates did not appear for the clients.
Except some urgent criminal cases, no proceedings were carried out in the High Court and District Courts.
A section of the lawyers are on strike since January 2, opposing the creation of a separate court at Rohini in West Delhi shifting some courts from the Tis Hazari district courts.
In a resolution, the Tis Hazari Bar Association said the strike would continue till the matter was resolved.
The Delhi High Court has declared the strike by a section of lawyers as 'illegal', saying that it would not tolerate any hardship to the litigant public.
