In the above video, the lawyers can be seen unleashing crude hooliganism against the police official by slapping him and later throwing a helmet on him. The unfortunate policeman, in a bid to save himself from further beating at the hands of the lawyers, takes a u-turn on his bike and escapes away.
As per latest reports, clashes between lawyers and police has now reached another court premise in Delhi. On Monday, lawyers at Delhi’s Karkardooma court reportedly beat up a policeman and have misbehaved with a woman journalist. Social media posts also say that common men, including litigants and some court staff members, have been attacked by the lawyers too.
The incident happened a day after another appalling video of a fight between lawyers and Delhi police personnel had emerged. Earlier yesterday, a fight broke out between lawyers and policemen near the premises of Tis Hazari court, with lawyers reportedly taking law into their own hands and beating up policemen. In response, the policemen also unleashed violence against the lawyers injuring two of them.
According to the reports, the incident began around 3 pm on Saturday when a policeman of the Delhi Police got into an altercation with a lawyer over parking his car outside the jail lockup, a space reserved for jail vans. However, the argument flared up when a group of lawyers who were campaigning for the bar council elections got into a heated exchange with the police.
This was not enough. The lawyers also manhandled a journalist when they were asked about the incident. When questioned about their behaviour with the policeman at Tis Hazari court, Delhi lawyers got into a verbal spat with ANI news agency journalist Aiman at St Stephen’s hospital. Some lawyers even pushed and shoved a woman journalist when she tried to ask questions to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who had gone to meet the injured lawyers at the hospital. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal met the lawyers at the hospital who were injured and said that the Delhi Government will bear the expenses of their treatment.
