The Delhi district court lawyers across Delhi on Wednesday, 6 November, continued to boycott judicial work and protested following clashes between lawyers and policemen.

The demonstration comes a day after thousands of Delhi police personnel laid siege outside the Police Headquarters for 11 hours. The protesting cops eventually called off the stir after numerous appeals, including from their chief.

The protests by both cops and lawyers were triggered by two separate clashes – one on Monday, 4 November, outside Saket District Court in which there is footage of lawyers attacking a policeman as he flees on his bike; and another on Saturday, 2 November, at the Tis Hazari Courts Complex after a parking dispute between a lawyer and an on-duty policeman, which led to at least 20 security personnel and several advocates being injured.
