New Delhi, May 27 IANS | 2 months ago

Around 200 students and people from the northeast Tuesday held a protest march here demanding action against lawyers who attacked a woman advocate from the northeast in a court premises here last week.


Carrying banners, the protestors marched from Hindi Bhavan in the Bal Bhavan Complex to the office of the Bar Council of India at Rouse Avenue in central Delhi.

They demanded an inquiry into the case by the Bar Council.

The woman lawyer and two activists were allegedly beaten up by a group of people inside the Tis Hazari court premises Friday, when they came there in connection with a case of molestation that allegedly took place outside Delhi University Thursday.

A woman from Nagaland was allegedly molested by a lawyer.

Police said a case has been registered and investigation is on.
