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