Kolkata: A section of lawyers of the Calcutta High Court Friday staged a protest against the alleged allotment of a court room to the Assistant Court Officer(ACO).
"A group of around 60-70 lawyers today staged a demonstration inside the court room against the allotment of a court room to the ACO. The agitating lawyers did not vacate
the room till late in the night," Joint Commissioner of Police (Headquarters) Jawed Shamim said.
"We have sent our forces at the High Court to evict the room," he said.
Rana Mukherjee, secretary of the Bar Association questioned that despite a shortage of court rooms, why was the room alloted to the ACO.
