SC issues notices by petition of FIR against police officers for confrontation between police and lawyer in the court of Tis Hazari

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court issued a notice on Monday to the Union of India (UOI), the Delhi Bar Council (BCD), the NCT Government of Delhi and others, after hearing a petition filed by a lawyer, requesting FIR registration against each member of 3rd Battalion who entered the court premises without the permission of the District Judge in the unfortunate incident where they clashed with lawyers.

A bank headed by the President of the Supreme Court of India (CJI) Sharad Arvind Bobde has issued a notice to the Indian Union, the Delhi Bar Council, the Delhi Police, the Tis Hazari Bar Association and others.

Police personnel allegedly hit male and female lawyers and damaged their property, who have been performing their duties as a court officer, Reepak Kansal said in his petition.

The petitioner has also prayed to deploy trained security forces in courts other than the Delhi police. The petitioner had moved the Apex Court challenging the order, which had eliminated his petition.

The clashes, which occurred due to an alleged parking problem last year, injured several lawyers and police personnel. The Delhi Superior Court ordered a judicial investigation into the clashes.
