Law Breakers or Law Guardians
- Mahatma Gandhi
People are the kings , self rulers in a democracy . Peoples representatives must just represent the wishes , aspirations of people. Example : PEOPLE are nothing but land owners , MPs , MLAs , people’s representatives are just GPA Holders. The Electorate – Citizens of India are SUPREME than Parliament , Ministers and all Other Institutions. When people in Jaitapur , Maharashtra state of India and People of Koodankulam , Tamilnadu are totally against a nuke plant in their area and they don’t want it , still the authorities are forcing this project over their head.
Since 63 years of independence , In India the learned IAS babus & Netas are forcing their agendas , SEZs , Projects over the people for their own selfish gains , against the wishes of people. This is not DEMOCRACY.
The people's representatives are bound to represent their people first , then their party & party think tanks. India has come to this sorry state of affairs , widespread corruption , huge black economy & rampant poverty, all due to inefficient legislations & enforcements.
These think tanks & IAS lobby, consider themselves as most super brains on earth & gives out suggestions . the present state of affairs is a barometer of their brilliance. Take just one case for the brilliance of our cabinet ministers & IAS babus , In India nearly 50 crore people are barely surviving on a single piece meal per day , hundreds of people are dying due to HUNGER & MALNUTRITION at one end at the other end thousands of tonnes of food grains are rotting away , wasted in FCI Godowns (ie the food procured by the government) , what brilliant ministers & IAS officers ? These think tanks & IAS lobby are the hand maidens of lobbyists / bribers.
Now consider the following example :
Mr.raj gandhi is a member of parliament from mandya constituency in karnataka state. He is a MBA graduate & member of ruling Indian progressive party. The multinational giant M/S GREY HOUND CORPORATION wants to enter into paper manufacturing business in india. It's sight falls on the public sector paper giant mandya national paper mills (MNPM) in mandya district of karnataka. The MNC effectively lobbies with the government. The ruling party think tank & the cabinet advisory group recommends to the government to make strategic
disinvestment in the PSU M/S MNPM. They bring out graph with full power point presentation stating that it is good for the company as well as the government. The lobbyists follows it up with media reports on the positive aspect of strategic disinvestment. A favourable impression is created in the minds of literate public. The cabinet
committee okays it.
The " strategic dis investment issue " comes before the parliament for legislation / approval. The ruling party issues a party whip to it's members to vote in favour of dis investment. However M.P mr.raj gandhi who is an MBA in his own wisdom also favours the dis investment. However ,most importantly the constituents – people in mandya parliamentary constituency through protest marches , mass post card campaigns lakhs in numbers expresses their disagreement with the dis investment & urges their MP mr.gandhi to vote against the disinvestment legislation.
On the D-day in parliament , mr. Raj gandhi as per his party whip & his own wisdom votes in favour of strategic disinvestment legislation, much against the wishes of his people , constituents & mis represents them in parliament. the democracy has failed here. in This way democracy is being derailed since 62 years in india.
In democracy, party whip , MP or MLA's own wisdom / brilliance, think tank & IAS lobby recommendations are all secondary , the constituent's of his constituency , people's wishes aspirations are of primary importance & supreme. What people need is a honest
representative, who simply delivers the people's aspirations on the floor of the house back & forth , without superimposing it with his own ideas & party ideas. For true democracy , the people's representatives must be true postmans.
Towards this end , the people must be educated about their democratic rights & responsibilities. This is an appeal to the honest few in the parliament & state legislatures to weed out their corrupt colleagues , lobbyists, to uphold the dignity of the house & to install democracy in it's true form. Jai Hind. Vande Mataram.
A little after 12 pm, an ambulance tore away, its siren blaring the coda to what had unfolded inside the Lok Sabha. A glass table-top had been smashed. A mic had been yanked from a table and flung. And Mr Rajagopal, age 49, had sprung with his aerosol can in a scrum of parliamentarians fighting in the centre or the Well of the House. Reports that a knife had been pulled by an MP added to the chaos. (First pepper spray, then gas masks in Parliament: 10 developments)
Three parliamentarians were moved to hospital complaining of burning eyes. A fourth was admitted for severe chest pains.
At 12 pm, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde tabled the bill that blueprints the creation of the Telangana state. Within seconds, the violence began. (Blog: A reporter's account of today's Lok Sabha violence)
The five-minute riot in Parliament was constructed by those who say they will not allow Parliament to discuss or vote on the proposal that bifurcates Andhra Pradesh by carving out one of its three regions, Telangana, as a new southern state. The architects of today's violence were unrepentant. "Why should I apologize?" asked Venugopal Reddy, who is a member of the Telugu Desam Party. "The government should apologize for the Telangana bill," he said defiantly, while rejecting allegations that he brandished a knife during the clashes. "I pulled out a mic," he said, with a sense of accomplishment. (Watch)
Politicians opposed to a Telangana state have been bingeing on bad behaviour since this Parliament session began on February 5, but today's exhibit of total anomie is unprecedented in the history of the Indian Parliament. "They have shamed India, they have shamed us," said Speaker Meira Kumar, who later suspended 16 lawmakers for the violence. (Acted in self-defense, says L Rajagopal, the 'pepper-spray MP')
"What happened today....the Congress has to take responsibility for it," said Rajnath Singh, the chief of the main opposition party, the BJP. (Read: On Telangana, government gets no help from BJP)
The move to downsize Andhra Pradesh, designed as vote-bait before the national election by the Congress, has proven so far to be a gross miscalculation, resulting in strident dissent from its own chief minister, Kiran Kumar Reddy. Like other politicians who want the plan nixed, his constituency lies in the non-Telangana regions of Seemandhra, which will form the residuary state.
The Congress needs the support of the BJP to push the Telangana proposal through Parliament before it wraps on February 21. The BJP had so far suggested it would back the bill if the Congress could ensure order in Parliament to allow for a debate, and if the government made special financial provisions to help Seemandhra, which is worried about a smaller share of water, power and revenue from Telangana once the new state is created.
After today's debacle, the BJP said the government has lost the right to try and clear any legislation other than the interim budget.
this present sorry state of affairs is due to the caste consciousness of the electorate. The public instead of seeing the honesty , integrity of electoral candidates looks just at his caste , in this trend they elect persons who belongs to their caste even though he is dishonest , untrustworthy
& a criminal . Now , the number of criminals , density of criminals ( who are masterminds in evading conviction ) is more in elected houses of people's representatives - parliament , state assemblies , panchayaths , corporations , etc than in the jails , outside public society . HRW is ready to prove this subject to conditions , in larger public interest. Our people's representatives must learn classroom discipline , punctuality of attendance , home work , from little kids
of primary school.
We have won the independence by the hard way , by the innumerable sacrifices made by great martyrs like mahatma Gandhi , Nehru , bhagath singh , etc. The criminals who have occupied constitutional positions don't have any right to squander that hard won independence of
Indians. The disgrace , contempt to august house of people's representatives is brought upon itself by the corrupt people's representatives themselves.
We at HRW , have highest regards for the institution of parliament , this is an appeal to the honest few in the parliament to bring to book their corrupt colleagues & to uphold the dignity of the house . JAI HIND. VANDE MATARAM.

11) Can a Legislature or Parliament enact a new law, to circumvent or to nullify the Judicial orders with respect to wrongdoings by peoples representatives & executive ? does not it amount to infringement of Judicial powers & contempt of the court by the House.
12) Are the FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES of a citizen more important than constitutional duties of a constitutional functionary or equal in importance to it ?
13) Can a constitutional functionary commit crimes, anti-national activities in the name of constitutional duties, behind the legal veil of official's secret act & go unaccountable for his actions and go unpunished by his legal immunity privileges ?
14) Are the Legislators members of parliament, High court & Supreme court Judges and other constitutional functionaries not willing to codify their privileges for the reason that if codified their privileges would be curtailed and their action would be subjected to legal scrutiny. ?
15) By votes of citizens Legislators and parliamentarians get seats in the legislature and Parliament out of tax payer's money, they get their pay, perks & lead 5-Star luxurious lifestyles.

23) Communication - free flow of information is the lifeline of a democracy. Why the constitutional functionaries are not honouring the Right to Information of Citizens ?
News channels broadcast footage on Wednesday showing Shankarbhai Chaudhary allegedly watching porn on a tablet computer with his colleague Jethabhai Bharwad while sitting in the state assembly.
Both politicians said the reports were "baseless".
"Nothing of this sort happened," Chaudhary told reporters. "This is being done to malign me."
Outrage over the incident, with a dose of mockery, fuelled updates on social media, with ‘#porngate', ‘BJP MLAs' and ‘Gujarat Assembly' trending on Twitter in India.
"So all buildings of state assembly have excellent Internet speeds," commented Twitter user @wastrelette.
Three BJP MLAs in Karnataka, including a women's affairs minister, resigned in February after being caught watching pornography on a mobile phone during a state assembly session.

MPs also get a daily allowance of Rs 1,000 per day to attend Parliament and Rs 2 crore a year to spend on development of their constituencies as they see fit, a practice that many consider unconstitutional though the Supreme Court has upheld it.
Much of the criticism of the salaries of MPs springs from the fact that the electorate – which incidentally puts them in power – does not think they are doing a good job. It has been pointed out that there is very little debate on most bills in the House unless a particular party has some interest at stake or can derive mileage from the issue. Private members bills are rare. The last one that was made into an Act was in 1970. Public perception of MPs using their positions to make money for themselves also adds to the indignation when MPs vote themselves a salary hike. Moreover, some 150 MPs elected last year have criminal cases against them, with 73 very serious cases ranging from rape to murder.

Bangalore: Lawyers Assault Mediapersons, Police Lob Teargas Shells, Lathicharge
(With PTI Inputs): Following the assault on mediapersons by lawyers outside the court here on Friday March 2, the media fraternity across the state has launched a massive protest demanding action against lawyers.
Protests have been launched in Bangalore, Chikmagalur, Chikkaballapur, Belgaum, Shimoga, Mysore, Kolar, Dharwad, Bellary, Tumkur and many other districts.
Police burst teargas shells and used batons to quell violent crowds of advocates, who pelted stones and attacked media persons and police in the city civil court premises, leaving several of them injured including a DCP.
The trouble erupted when a section of lawyers assaulted media persons who were in the court complex to cover former minister and mining baron G Janardhana Reddy's appearance before a CBI court in an illegal mining case.
Some advocates tried to prevent lensmen and mediapersons from filming the visuals of Reddy and it soon turned into ugly scenes of scuffle and wordy duel between advocates, media persons and police before violence broke out.
Besides several media persons, some police personnel including Deputy Commissioner of Police Ramesh, were injured in the stone pelting, police said.
Going on the rampage, the lawyers also pelted stones at a government college located near the court, triggering protests from students.
As the situation went out of control and advocates started throwing stones from the court building, police rushed in and resorted to lathicharge to disperse them.
Top police officials, including City Police Commissioner Jyoti Prakash Mirji, rushed to the spot and were trying to bring the situation under control.
Expressing anguish over the attack, Karnataka Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda said stringent action will be taken against those responsible.
"I have asked Home Minister R Ashok to take action to bring the situation under control and initiate steps to protect journalists. The government will render necessary protection to mediapersons to ensure they can work in a free atmosphere," Gowda told reporters.
Gowda said he has convened a meeting of top officials, including Home Department Secretary, DGP and City Police Commissioner to discuss the violence that broke out in the court premises.
Condemning the attack on the journalists, former Lokayukta Justice Santosh Hegde said appropriate action should be taken by the law enforcement authority.
"Very unfortunate....coming from an educated class of people. It looks like an all out attack on media because they have been publishing against them," he said.
Ashok termed the attack on media and police as unfortunate and slammed the advocates for indulging in violence.
"Action will be taken as per law. It is unfortunate that such incidents by lawyers has been occurring at frequent intervals", he said apparently referring to the road blockade by lawyers in the busy Kempegowda road on January 17.
The violence had its effect in working in the City Civil Court complex as proceedings were suspended in several court halls.

The City Civil Court here turned into a battlefield on Friday as groups of lawyers launched a no-holds-barred attack on journalists who had come to cover the proceedings of the special CBI court where Bellary mining baron G. Janardhan Reddy was produced at 11 a.m.
The injured included Sessions Court judge R.B. Budhihal in a lathi-charge, nearly a dozen journalists, policemen as well as lawyers. Property worth several lakhs of rupees, particularly motorbikes and cars, was damaged or destroyed in the melee. At least 60 people were treated in various government hospitals in the city.
Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda has ordered a judicial inquiry into the incident.
One of the first journalists to be hit on Friday was K.N. Kiran, a television reporter. Even as policemen watched, he was attacked by a group of lawyers around 10.30 a.m. when he tried to enter the court hall. “They kept telling me that the beating was for the negative coverage of the January 16 incident [when lawyers had gone on a similar rampage],” Mr. Kiran told The Hindu.
When the CBI court proceedings began, the judge ordered journalists to vacate the room. The lawyers then took it upon themselves to shove journalists out of the premises. Things were calm till the court proceedings concluded.
As soon as Mr. Janardhan Reddy was driven away by the CBI police, the lawyers once again demanded that all journalists leave the premises. At this point four women television reporters walked up to the lawyers and tried to reason with them. But this soon degenerated into a shouting match and some of the women were jostled and groped.
Then all hell broke loose and lawyers started attacking the journalists with whatever they could find — stones, flowerpots, helmets, sticks and furniture.
Throughout this the police played a passive role and did not attempt to contain the lawyers even when one projectile struck Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central Division) G. Ramesh. It was only when Police Commissioner Jyothi Prakash Mirji came under attack that some constables started a lathi-charge.
The police finally contained the lawyers by surrounding the court complex and launching at least four waves of baton charges. But just when matters began to settle (around 3.30 p.m.) a section of journalists joined some policemen in attacking anybody wearing a white shirt and black trousers. Together, they set fire to several vehicles that bore the sign “advocate”. Some journalists who tried to stop others from resorting to this arson were also thrashed by their own counterparts.
Lawyers of the Madras High Court - Law unto Themselves
by Radha Rajan
The time has come to break the studied silence of the Secularists and the Dravidians on the issue. Meanwhile, the rowdiness and sheer goondaism of the lawyers of Tamil Nadu as of this moment remains unabated as they continue to rampage across cities and towns vandalising shops, buildings, and police property, and threatening policemen and officers on duty. This section of lawyer-rowdies has not spared police housing quarters either. The Tamil Nadu Government has now issued shoot-at-sight orders to the police. It had no other option.
The Tamil Nadu Assembly on the 20th evicted MLAs belonging to the AIADMK, the PMK, MDMK, the CPI and CPI (M) from the House; the Speaker of the Assembly had earlier refused to allow them to raise the issue in the House or discuss it. While the political position of the Opposition, taking a uni-dimensional view of the complex problem by roundly condemning only the police force for the violence was predictable and along expected lines, the statement of former Chief Minister and AIADMK general secretary Ms. Jayalalithaa would have been laughable had the issue not been so serious, with far-reaching consequences.
Asking the Center to impose Article 356 in the State, Ms. Jayalalithaa also made the preposterous demand that a state of Emergency be declared in Tamil Nadu. She justified her demand on the ground, “This incident proves that the Tamil Nadu police have now become a violent force.” Ms. Jayalalithaa may think the people of Tamil Nadu have short memories, but it was she who ran Tamil Nadu like a police state in the wake of the arrest and immoral incarceration of the venerable Peethathipathi of the Kanchi matham to brutally quell all protests and demonstrations against her.
In the recent past, barely three months ago, on 13 November 2008, Ms. Jayalalithaa had castigated the State Government and the very same “violent” police force for their “inaction” and for being mute spectators when a group of scheduled caste students of the Madras Law College mounted a murderous attack against caste Hindu students inside the college campus under the very eyes of the police who were stationed outside the college; the police cannot enter educational institutions (like they cannot enter our courts) unless summoned by the head of the institution, the Dean or the Principal. Ms. Jayalalithaa faulted the police force for not entering the college campus despite being witness to the life-threatening attack. The police was damned then because it didn’t. The police force is damned today because it did.
The cause for the Law College clashes in November 2008 was overtly political and projected as a caste conflict, but the real cause for the homicidal attack was covert and religious. Unless the silence on this sensitive issue is broken and the truth spoken loud and clear, the poison that is coursing within the Tamil Nadu Bar and Judiciary, emaciating and wasting this important body, cannot be identified and neutralised; and this bodes very ill for democracy which ultimately rests on the character of the judges. Judges, let us recall, emerge only from among the ranks of lawyers; the Tamil Nadu pool contributing to the nation’s total tally of judges is today contaminated. Politically motivated or politically expedient diagnosis of this malaise will not check, much less cure, the disease.
The majority of scheduled caste students in all government-aided educational institutions are Christians; either first-generation or second generation converts. Tamil chauvinism, like Islam and Christianity, is driven only by politics and has only political objectives as its raison d’etre. Capturing the State, failing which secession from the mother country, is the objective of Tamil chauvinism. The LTTE is the most telling example of this contention. Unlike Marathi or Kannada chauvinism, Tamil chauvinism spills over into contiguous neighbouring Sri Lanka, and like the murderous and secessionist Nagas of the North-east who want to establish a Greater Nagaland, the Tamil chauvinists of Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu desire to establish a greater Tamil nation. It is not a coincidence that Tamil chauvinists, like the Nagas, are in the main Christians.
The coastal communities and entire districts of Tamil Nadu are almost totally Christian or Muslim, with irreligious, viciously anti-Hindu Dravidian Tamils constituting the cadre of the two main and other sundry, rising splinter Dravidian political parties who form the backbone of Tamil chauvinism - the DMK, the AIADMK, the PMK, the DMDK and MDMK. The communist parties habitually throw in their lot with the electorally successful anti-Hindu and anti-nation Dravidian party or coalition.
It bears mention that the LTTE has the backing of the Church in Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu, and also that the Sri Lankan Muslim population is almost totally Tamil-speaking. This is separatist, secessionist, Tamil chauvinist poison brew, and it is this brew which is contaminating all educational institutions, including the Madras Law College and other Law colleges in the state and all educational institutions.
The extent of Church penetration by way of the growing numbers of Christians in these parties and through direct and indirect funding of these political parties can be gauged from the fact that all Dravidian parties met the US Consul-General in Chennai on 20 February, pleading with him on bended knees, for American intervention in Sri Lanka to protect the Tamil people! They have thus signalled that their agenda in Sri Lanka is different from that of their national government. If these parties can ask for US intervention in Sri Lanka which is not in India’s national interest, tomorrow they may ask for the same in India if the national government is inimical to the political objectives of Islam or Christianity. Anti-Hindu Tamil chauvinism rests only on the support base of these so-called minority religions.
Non-Hindu and anti-Hindu Tamil chauvinist students go on to become Heads of Department, Deans, Vice-Chancellors and other important people in Tamil Nadu’s fully or partially aided educational institutions, while the same species of students in Tamil Nadu’s Law Colleges aspire to become Government Pleaders, judges in the subordinate judiciary and eventually, god help us all, judges of the Madras High Court and thereafter transferred on promotion to other States. The penultimate stop in the journey is eventual vertical ascension as lawyers or judges in the Supreme Court, culminating as Chief Justice of India. All right-thinking patriots in the nation’s Bar and Judiciary owe it to themselves and to the nation to cleanse the Madras Bar pool of this poison.
The clash between two sections of students in November 2008 in the Madras Law College was between students belonging to one caste which is Hindu and students belonging to the scheduled castes who are in the main, Christians or anti-Hindu irreligious Dravidian Tamil chauvinists. The coterie around Ms. Jayalalithaa comes from this Hindu community and given her new love for Christianity and the Church, the November clashes placed her literally on the horns of a political dilemma. She and the ruling DMK sought the most politically expedient escape route; they hanged the policeman. The then Commissioner of Police R Sekhar was removed summarily, as was Joint Commissioner (North) Abhay Kumar Singh.
Because Tamil Nadu’s dangerous anti-nation politics will not permit them to diagnose the problem correctly, the cure was just as faulty and destined to fail. Transferring senior police officers for the rowdyism, goondaism and terrorism of the students of Law College in November did not prevent or deter the shameful happening in Court Hall 3 on 17 February, or the events that followed it as a direct consequence of political inaction, silence, and even capitulation over the murderous attack by the scheduled caste lawyers on Dr. Subramanian Swamy, police men, women and officers and others in the court on that day.
The secular print and media, with no knowledge or understanding of the intricacies of Tamil Nadu’s politics and its contrived political links with Sri Lanka’s politics, are also guilty of choosing the easy route towards TRPs. They have been guilty of great disservice to their chosen profession by not informing or educating the people about the truth of the events. The police and the army are the favourite whipping boys, but the media must pause and introspect – what will be the state of the nation if the police and the army one day simply refused to act?
Which forces will benefit the most? The terrorist components of Islam, Christianity and Communism have forged partnerships and are a seamless web. Media coverage of the growing lawlessness of scheduled caste students and lawyers of the Tamil Nadu Law Colleges and the Bar is ridden with political clichés and hackneyed phrases of police excesses. The violence in the state is growing because Dr. Swamy allegedly referred to the lawyers derogatorily by their caste name, and the rowdies want Dr. Swamy arrested. The goonda lawyers are also burning the effigy of DGP K.P. Jain for ordering the Swift Action Group to move into the court premises in response to the vandals setting fire to the police station located inside the court. Under the circumstances, to prevent being blamed for inaction, the DGP had no other option but to deal with the rampaging mob in a manner he considered appropriate and effective.
Dr. Swamy is a “brahmin dog” and DGP Jain is an “invading Aryan.” The scheduled caste Christian converts and the anti-Hindu Dravidian scheduled caste Tamils have been supported by all Dravidian political parties with the right to verbally and obscenely abuse and physically assault Hindus. This organized group when faced by resistance promptly seeks refuge in the law, accusing the victims of having denigrated them by abusing them by their caste name. This is now a well-known and expected ploy and always succeeds in breaking the spirit of even the sturdiest Hindu resistance to their bullying and abuse. They are doing the same with Dr. Swamy now, and instead of asking to see the court order wherein the judges have attested to the lawyers abusing Dr. Swamy as “brahmin dog,” the media is propagating the lawyers’ version and adding fuel to the well-planned fire of caste war.
Caste Hindus [read OBCs – Editor] are known to retaliate in equal and appropriate measure to anti-Hindu provocations, but Brahmins are soft targets. The war here is not Brahmins against scheduled castes, but Christians and Dravidian Tamils against Hindus via Brahmins. The bonus in this war is beating up policemen and burning police outposts and police jeeps and cars. If in the violence they get to beat up the police, that constitutes victory in the minor battle. It was so in 1998, it was so a decade later in 2008 and it continues to be that way in 2009. The war will be won when Tamil Nadu goes the Kerala Way. I think it has already gone that way and far beyond.
Lawyers, police fight pitched battles in Madras High Court
|Police station set ablaze, vehicles smashed, many lawyers and policemen injured|
Chaos in court: Lawyers hurl stones at policemen on the premises of the Madras High Court on Thursday.
Police burst teargas shells to disperse the agitating lawyers. High Court judges who came to the premises to see the damage caused to advocates’ vehicles had to run when they were confronted by lathi-wielding policemen. Fire fighters who tried to put out the flames engulfing the police station were attacked by the advocates.
The chain of events was set off by the police attempt to arrest a group of advocates involved in the attack on Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy and some policemen in the court complex on Tuesday. A group of advocates demanded that Dr. Swamy be also arrested for abusing one of their colleagues on caste lines.
Heated arguments ended in violence. A group of lawyers, which was near the building housing the Family Courts, and the policemen, positioned near the High Court station, began throwing stones and bottles at each other. The policemen came out with their protective shields and began chasing away the lawyers. Several advocates, office staff and litigants ran helter-skelter, with the policemen in pursuit. The injured advocates were carried by their colleagues to a dispensary for first aid. Later, ambulances were called in to take the injured to hospital.
Even as a group of advocates kept raising slogans against the policemen, several advocates went to the chamber of the Acting Chief Justice, S.J. Mukhopadhaya, protesting against the “police excesses.” Mr. Justice Mukhopadhaya tried to pacify the advocates, but they asked him to come down and see for himself the damage caused to their vehicles, allegedly by policemen.
The judges then appealed to the advocates to maintain calm so that a solution could be found. Later, when a few judges went towards the policemen, with the slogan-raising advocates following them, the policemen resorted to lathi charge. In this melee, Justice Arumuga Perumal Adityan, was hit by a stone and he suffered a head injury. He was rushed to hospital where his condition was stated to be stable.
With reinforcements, including commandos of elite units, arriving, the police chased away all lawyers from the court premises. Following this, trouble spilled over to NSC Bose Road. A mention was made by advocate R.Vaigai before Mr. Justice Mukhopadhaya about the incident.
The police station in the court complex that was set ablaze.
CBI probe The High Court has ordered a CBI enquiry and the State government has given its consent. Three committees have been formed by the High Court to assess the damage to property.
A top official said Mr. Justice Mukhopadhaya’s demand to release all those arrested on Thursday was conceded.
“This is applicable only to those advocates who were arrested on Thursday and not those arrested earlier,” he added.
"Regretfully, far from being the upholders of the rule of law, the lawyers seem to have behaved as hooligans and miscreants. The incidents that transpired over a last month or so make it clear that the lawyers seemed to be under the impression that, because they are officers of the Court, they are immune from the process of law and that they could get away with any unlawful act without being answerable to the law enforcing agency."
"There is no doubt that the violence was started by the unruly mob of lawyers, some of whom were even dressed in robes and bands, but once the police got into action, there was no stopping them. It was as if the police force, as a body, went berserk. The lathi charge continued irrespective of whether a lawyer was a miscreant or otherwise."
