Delhi lawyers' strike paralyses judicial work

By Ians

New Delhi, Sep 16: A strike by lawyers protesting the shifting of Patiala House Court to Rouse Avenue paralysed the judicial work in all district courts of Delhi on Friday.

Due to non-appearance of lawyers, the court adjourned the hearing of the cases.

Even the tea vendors and other shops of the court premises shut their outlets and supported the lawyers' protest.

"We are protesting against the shifting and future bifurcation of other courts," the Co-ordination Committee of All District Court Bar Associations of Delhi said in a statement.

The Committee quoted the Delhi government as saying that there are 400 chambers for lawyers in the new building.

"But the building plan reveals there is no provision for lawyers' chambers," said Committee spokesperson Sanjeev Nasiar. He said that the decision was taken unilaterally.

The strike remained successful in all the six district courts -- Patiala House, Tis Hazari, Rohini, Karkardooma, Saket and Dwarka.
