General Secretary of the North Delhi Lawyer’s Association, advocate Vineet Jindal has issued a press statement which reads,
“Security lapse in district courts is a great concern for litigants and advocates. Delhi High Court is also taking note upon the security lapse and has issued directions to the Delhi police, but the security issue is still the same. Delhi’s District Courts must have a delegated security unit with updated gadgets, then only we can ensure the security of Delhi’s district courts. Judge advocates and litigants who visit Courts to get justice must have a secure environment in the Court. Nowadays, litigants, advocates and even judges are scared due to the recent incident in district courts in Delhi.”
Two months back, armed men posing as lawyers entered the premises and shot gangster Jitender Maan alias Gogi.
