Nearly 15 people were injured in a fight on Saturday afternoon, November 2 at the Tis Hazari Court complex. A video (above) has surfaced of the courts’ lock up, with an alarming display of aggression from the lawyers who appear to have stormed in, and immediately attacked the police personnel inside.
The video also shows a policeman kicked to the ground and surrounded. By the end of this video, he is left limp and lying on the floor, averting his face until the crowd clears out.
The fight reportedly began over a parking dispute, and as many as 17 vehicles were set on fire during the aggression. The lawyers said that four advocates were injured, one of whom was hurt in police firing. The police, however, denied the allegation.
Subsequently, the Delhi High Court has ordered a judicial inquiry into the violence, asking the Delhi Police to submit an investigation report within the next six weeks. The Delhi Police Commissioner was also asked to suspend the accused police officials with immediate effect.
Lawyers of the district courts are continuing their strike on November 5 following the clash, ANI reported.
