Clash with CISF personnel in Chennai High Court; 9 advocates suspended

A complaint was lodged against the advocates for using abusing language to a woman officer.

The Bar Council has suspended 9 advocates for a period of one year after they clashed with CISF (Central Industrial Security Force) personnel at the Chennai High court  . The incident took place when CISF security personnel started photographing people entering the court premises. A woman advocate protested it, resulting in heated arguments and other advocates joining the bedlam.

The CISF security was deployed in the Madras High Court a year ago pursuant to a court order after an agitation by the lawyers disrupting the proceedings of the court.

A complaint was lodged against the advocates for using abusing language to a woman officer. The bar council took disciplinary action  against 9 advocates and all of them were suspended from attending the court for one year.
