Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

The Delhi High Court has dismissed the reconsideration petition filed by the Delhi Police and the Ministry of Home Affairs. This implies that the Delhi High Court’s decision of 3 November remains intact. The high court also dismissed Delhi Police’s plea seeking its permission to register an FIR against the attorneys involved in the case of violence at the Saket court.

The police had filed a review petition challenging the judgment given by the high court in the case of violence outside the Tis Hazari Court. But the Delhi High Court declined to give any clarification or modification of its order passed on Sunday with regard to the Tis Hazari clash between lawyers and police saying its order was self-explanatory.

Delhi HC brings all efforts of police leadership to nought

Seeing the seriousness of all these situations, the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi had called a meeting at his residence on Wednesday. Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik, CP, Joint CP and other top officials were present in this meeting with them.

After a meeting at the residence of the lieutenant governor, the Delhi Police commissioner had held a meeting with senior officials including Joint CP (Crime) to reconsider the petition. This reconsideration petition was to be filed against the order of the Delhi High Court about the incident of lawyer-police conflict at the Tis Hazari Court. But their effort came to a nought with the high court dismissing their petition.

The violent clash between lawyers and policemen on Saturday (2 November) at the Tis Hazari court of Delhi took another violent turn on Wednesday. While thousands of policemen had demonstrated on the streets of Delhi on Tuesday, lawyers protesting outside three big courts of Delhi since Saturday created a ruckus on Wednesday. The work of the three courts (Patiala House Court, Rohini Court, Saket Court) was completely stalled. Not only this, the lawyers closed the entrance of the Patiala House Court.

CRPF watching over Delhi Police

In an awkward development earlier, the security outside the Delhi Police Headquarters was spruced up after a protest by police personnel on Tuesday by deploying Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel on the spot.

The community of lawyers reacted to the police protests expectedly, with the Bar Council of India saying on Tuesday that the demands of the policemen were wrong. Bar president Manan Mishra said that the manner of protest by the policemen was not right; so, all their demands should be rejected.

Meanwhile, apart from Rohini and Saket courts, a strike was observed at the Karkardooma Court where lawyers protested with demonstrations. A judge went on a tour at the Rohini court. While the lawyers were still adamant on their demands, a rumour spread that one of them had tried to commit suicide at the Rohini Court.

The incident

There was a lot of ruckus between the lawyers and the police when a car was parked outside the lockup on Saturday afternoon at the Tis Hazari Court complex of north Delhi. Angry lawyers surrounded the policemen and some of them heckled the men in khaki. The policemen fired in the air but hit a lawyer. Angry lawyers beat some policemen up and set 17 vehicles, including a Maruti Gypsy and 13 motorcycles parked in the court premises, on fire.

In the entire case, 20 policemen including one ADCP, two SHOs were injured. On the other hand, the lawyers have said that eight of their colleagues were injured. Till late evening there was tension in the court premises that day while a lull has descended on the ground ever since.
