Ghaziabad: Lawyers of district courts of western Uttar Pradesh intensified their stir on the third day Thursday, with advocates protesting on the NH-58 highway here and
calling a `chakka jam` in Muzaffarnagar to press for their demand of setting up a separate bench of Allahabad High Court in western UP.

Advocates, under the banner of State High Court Bench Action Committee, tried to stop a Meerut-bound passenger train at about 8 am in Ghaziabad, but police flung into action and managed the smooth functioning of the train service, Senior Superintendent of Police (Ghaziabad) Akhil Kumar said here.
Motor-cycle rallies were taken out in all district centres even as advocates attempted to disrupt the road traffic at several places, police said.

With Ghaziabad Vyapar Mandal supporting the stir, markets were also partially affected in this district.

In Muzaffarnagar, lawyers called a `chakka jam` and no mode of public transports was seen on the road. Schools and business establishments remained closed amid dharna protests by advocates on Delhi-Dehradun highway since 7 am.

The famous jaggery market (gud mandi) in the district was also affected by the agitation.

The district courts across western Uttar Pradesh wore a deserted look and proceedings remained badly affected as part of the three-day stir that concludes today.
