“It is nothing but open Gundagardi of Uttar Pradesh Police”
The Bar Council of India has taken a very serious notice of the incident which has taken place at Etah, Uttar Pradesh a few days back. The Police broke open the door of a house and c4raggec4 and pulled an Advocate (who was in Advocate’s dress) and assaulted hlm mercilessly. The video of this incident got viral and entire nation has witnessed it. There is no limit to such atrocities of Uttar Pradesh Police and it has crossed all the limits. Similarly, incidents were witnessec4 in West Bengal, Bihar and almost all states. Such actions of the police is rather worse than the crime committed by any hardened criminal/s.
The act of police of Uttar Pradesh is shocking, it caiuiot be expected from the protectors of Law and Order. The brutality clearly shows that the police persoruael of Etah were acting with some plaiuiing with some ulterior motive.
The Council, thus, resolves to request Hon’ble Chief Justice of India and Hon’ble Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court to take immediate steps to find out the guilty police personnel and issue a direction to Uttar Pradesh Goverrunent to irrtrnec4iately put them under suspension, transfer them and remove them from service. The video clip itself is sufficient evidence of their guilty and barbarous illegal conduct ance misconduct. The request of Uttar Pradesh Bar Council has not been considered by Uttar Pradesh Government.
The Indian Bar caruiot tolerate such atrocities anymore and if the Judiciary and the Government are ignoring such atrocities on the Lawyers or even on common man, the Bar will have no option except to come on roads.
The Bar Council of India has also resolved to write to Hon’ble Mr. Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister to take suitable action in the matter and make immediate suitable laws for providing protection to the Lawyers of the counoy.
The Bar Council of India has resolved and stated that the entire Legal Fraternity is in support of Bar Council of Uttar Pradesh and Lawyers of Uttar Pradesh on this issue.
