Tis Hazari clash: Delhi Police holds meeting with lawyers
New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Sunday held a meeting with lawyers regarding the Tis Hazari clash issue. The LG Delhi who was present at the meeting appealed to both police and lawyers to continue holding talks to resolve the issues amicably.
Delhi Police in their press statement said that a team of senior officers has been constituted for opening up the dialogues with the lawyers' bodies in compliance of the Delhi High Court's direction.
"A meeting was held by both the parties today evening in the presence of the LG, Delhi. During the discussion it was explained by Delhi Police officers that since the judicial enquiry is already underway, further action should be taken against any of the alleged persons only on the basis of the outcome of the judicial enquiry," reads the press statement.
Meanwhile the Coordination Committee of District Court Bar Associations on Sunday night decided that all district court lawyers in Delhi will resume their strike and stop working from Monday (today), in protest of police firing during the Tis Hazari clash one week ago. Sources here told Millennium Post that the lawyers have decided to resume their strike and continue with it until the police official who fired his weapon is arrested and prosecuted under the appropriate sections of the law. This decision however, comes in contradiction with the Bar Council of India, which had on Wednesday asked all lawyers in the city to suspend their strike for a period of 10 days.
