Muzaffarnagar: Judicial work in western
Uttar Pradesh was today affected as lawyers boycotted district
courts, protesting against the alleged killing of their
colleague in a sub-district court premises earlier this month.
Lawyers were agitated over the "delay" in police action
to nab those responsible for killing Narendra Verma on June 3
in the tehsil court at Mawana in Meerut. The call for the
boycott was given by the Uttar Pradesh Bar Council.
Judicial work in several district courts, including
Kanpur, Ghaziabad and Moradabad remained affected.
