Statewide Strike By UP Lawyers To Protest Killing Of Colleague In Shahjahanpur Court Premises

Prayagraj, Oct 20 (TNA) Lawyers across Uttar Pradesh will strike work on Wednesday to protest against the killing of a lawyer inside a court premises in Shahjahanpur two days back.

The call for the statewide strike has been given by the Bar Council. The lawyers are also seeking security and protection as there have been many such cases in the past, an office bearer said.

Advocates of Allahabad High Court will also abstain from judicial work. The Elder Committee of the High Court Bar Association has passed a resolution to this effect. The committee has requested the Chief Justice not to pass an adverse order due to the absence of advocates in the court due to the strike.
