Allahabad Lawyer's Killing: HC lawyers call off strike,  to work from Thursday

Allahabad: Uttar Pradesh Advocates of the Allahabad High Court, who have been boycotting judicial work for the past one week in protest against the killing of an advocate at the district court premises here, on Wednesday called off their strike.
The strike was called off following a meeting with the Chief Justice who assured them that their grievances will be looked into.

"Advocates will resume judicial work from Thursday. The decision was taken unanimously by all members of the High Court Bar Association (HCBA) after a meeting this morning with Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud", the Association's Joint Secretary (Press) Rahul Kumar Pandey said.

He said the HCBA delegation, which met the Chief Justice, was asked to consider the plight of litigants who have been suffering on account of the fact that no judicial work has taken place since last Thursday.

He said that there has not been much work in the High Court this month as before the week-long strike, there had been a week-long Holi vacation.

"The HCBA delegation submitted before the Chief Justice that there was a demand for the removal of the District Magistrate and the Senior Superintendent of Police for their incompetent handling of the episode," Pandey said.
The CJ said that a judicial inquiry was already underway, with a sitting High Court judge having been asked to probe the course of events which led to the killing of 30-year-old advocate Nabi Ahmed.
"The Chief Justice assured that all other issues relating to the safety of legal practitioners will be duly addressed in course of time", Pandey said.
Ahmed was shot dead inside the district court premises allegedly by sub-inspector Shailendra Pratap Singh.
The sub-inspector, posted at an outpost in a remote part of the district, was in the court to appear in connection with a case.
He allegedly opened fire from his service revolver following an altercation with a group of lawyers.
The sub-inspector, who claimed that he had fired in self-defence, was later arrested.

The advocate's killing had triggered violence and arson in the district court as well as the High Court with both the places witnessing heavy stone-pelting, torching and vandalization of several government vehicles by irate lawyers.
