New Delhi: After the public attack on co-accused in the Nithari murders, Moninder Singh Pandher, outside the Ghaziabad court in January, lawyers in Uttar Pradesh took law into their own hands yet again.
A young boy was beaten mercilessly by lawyers after an argument on Tuesday in the premises of an Agra district court.
The 22-year-old boy, Vinod, had come to the court to sort out a dispute with a relative, Ravinder, who is a lawyer in the Agra court. Vinod is the brother-in-law of Ravinder’s elder brother.
After a heated exchange, Ravinder and Vinod reportedly exchanged blows.
Soon after, the lawyers ganged up and beat up the boy mercilessly for more than an hour after tying him to a tree.
They reportedly shaved a part of his head and even spat on his face.
“We have registered an FIR and will be looking into the case. We are in touch with the Agra SSP,” said DIG Agra Range, Kamal Saksena.
The Bar Council of India has taken a serious note of the incident and sought FIR details.
