Lawyers` strike halts court proceedings in west UP

Lawyers in several districts of western UP boycotted court proceedings demanding speedy probe into the murder of two advocates in Lakhimpur Kheri.

Muzaffarnagar: Lawyers in several districts
of western Uttar Pradesh boycotted court proceedings demanding
speedy probe into the murder of two advocates in Lakhimpur
Kheri district on September 3.

Litigants faced a tough time as judicial work came to a
standstill in several district courts including Muzaffarnagar,
Meerut, Saharanpur, Bijnore, Baghpat, Bulandshar, Ghaziabad
and Moradabad.

Hearing of several high-profile cases including the case
against BSP MP Kadir Rana and murder case of Revati Singh,
wife of senior BJP leader Hukum Singh, were deferred due to
the strike called by Uttar Pradesh Bar Council.

Two lawyers were shot dead and three others seriously
injured when a group of lekhpals (notaries) opened fire at
them during a clash in Mohammadi tehsil premises of Lakhimpur
Kheri district. The incident had led to widespread protests by
lawyers across the state.
