Allahabad: Judicial work was paralysed at the Allahabad High Court, the bench of the Central Administrative Tribunal, the district court and other judicial bodies here due to the Bar Council of India`s call for a nationwide strike against the proposed Higher Education and Research Bill.
Lawyers gathered in front of the gates of the various courts, raising slogans against the proposed bill which seeks to regulate the legal education system in the country but has been facing strong opposition form the Bar Council of India.

While judicial work was stalled at the courts, causing inconvenience to litigants coming from remote villages, there was no report of violence or arson in any part of the city where a number of lawyers` agitations in the recent past have gone awry.

Meanwhile, the High Court Bar Association has announced that its strike will continue tomorrow, while the District Bar Association has declared that lawyers would boycott work till Friday.
