Pudukottai (TN): Advocates of the district court here on Tuesday commenced a two-day boycott of work protesting disconnection of power supply to the local Bar Association building in the court complex for non-payment of dues to the electricity department.

Electricity board officials said power was disconnected as the arrears of bill touched Rs.3.30 lakh.

Though the association functionaries were urged to settle the bills, they had not responded to their reminders, the officials maintained.

However, the advocates said the power supply was disconnected without prior notice, a contention denied by officials.
