Delhi lawyers to abstain from work Monday
Lawyers in Delhi will strike work Monday to protest the shifting of family courts from the Karkardooma courts complex in east Delhi.
The co-ordination committee of the district courts Sunday decided that lawyers will abstain from work Monday "in support of the Shahdara Bar Association against the shifting of family courts outside the court premises", said committee general secretary Nitin Ahlawat.
The Shahdara Bar Association observed strike Thursday and Friday, demanding the shifting back of family courts from the new building in Vishwas Nagar in east Delhi to Karkardooma complex.
The association has said the strike will continue.
The committee said there was enough vacant space in the Karkardooma complex as several rooms were unoccupied and family courts can be set up there. There was no need for moving family courts to any other premises.
