@amnestyonline Plight of Delh legal fraternity

THESE ARE ONLY TIP OF ICE BERG.
Hate crimes against #lawyers in
Delhi are numerous. All that #Bar/
Bars do is declare token strikes in
isolated cases only at the behest
of one or more of big lobbies of
lawyers or otherwise.
These lobbies have been found to
have sabotaged actions in highly
deserving, genuine and grave
cases.
In one case i know media was
influenced into suppressing the
news of crime against a lawyer
because powerful perpetrators
were in the know of a powerful
office bearer of a bar.
In another case the SHO was
instructed by a powerful office
bearer to not to register any case
against conductor and khalasis of
a Blue Line bus for mercilessly
beating up a junior lawyer at the
court bus-stop. Proposal for a
meeting aganst the crime was
sabotaged further senior
members of particular powerful
lobby set themselves upon a
campaign in court compound
against any possible meeting/
resolution in auditorium
Yet in another case a meeting was
sabotaged because a large
number of lawyers, majority of
them resorted to bedlam.
A sizeable number of lawyers had
come from other courts and also
who were not regular
practitioners, mostly youngsters.
There are cases where office
bearers of a #Bar and some
members of their lobby were
privy to crimes commited against
lawyers in their neighborhoods.
I am still witholding informations
and episodes which if I were to
divulge may cause serious
conflicts and lower our fraternity
in the estimation of the world.
The temerity in people in the
society who target lawyers with
impunity for harassment and
violence, is only because of #Black
Sheeps among us whose
numbers have grown over the
years.
I believe if i am able to document
and write expository reports on
the plight of lawyers, majority of
lawyer brothers would become
restless.
May I suggest these powerful
morons that they read in their
mother tongue ‘Macbeth’ atleast
once.
