NEW DELHI: On Tuesday he announced an ex-gratitude of Rs 25,000 each for police officers injured in clashes with lawyers at the court's premises on November 2, while hundreds of police and family members took to the streets on Tuesday to protest against the assault of some of his colleagues by the defenders.

Addressing the agitation of the police officers at the police headquarters here, the special commissioner Satish Golcha said: We will provide the best treatment to the police officers injured during the clashes and we will also give a bonus of Rs 25,000 each.

Golcha also said a case was recorded in the Saket Court incident, in which a lawyer was seen assaulting a policeman on Monday.

I ask everyone to end the turmoil as a disciplined force. I want to assure you on behalf of our Commissioner (Amulya Patnaik) and ask them to join their duties, he said.

Golcha was the fifth officer to request that the Protestant police officers join their duties.

Earlier in the day, the Delhi Police Commissioner, Amulya Patnaik, tried to convince the protesting policemen, but was booed by them.

The agitator cops too booed and made fun of several high-ranking officers while seeking to placate them during their protest against the assault of some of their colleagues by lawyers.

The protest received a boost when the Haryana Police Association, the Bihar Police Association and the Tamil Nadu Police Association extended their support to the agitated Delhi Police personnel.

Even family members of many police officers participated in the agitation at the police headquarters.

After Patnaik, the joint commissioners of the police Devesh Srivastava and Rajesh Khurana also tried to pacify the protesting personnel, but they also made fun of them.

The agitating police officers made five demands forcibly: a) There should be a Police Welfare Association to deal with police personnel complaints; b) Revoke suspension orders issued to some officers after Saturday's clashes; c) Defy the order of the superior court in the Supreme Court; d) No action against police personnel protesting when they join their duties; e) Treat lawyers who misbehave with the police according to the law.
