Lawyer assaulted for seeking adjournment

 A lawyer, who sought an adjournment in a property dispute case, was allegedly attacked by a litigant outside the civil court on Wednesday. The incident has shocked the lawyers practising at the district and sessions court here. 



The Pune Bar Association has condemned the incident and demanded action against the suspect, Rajmani Singh, of Koregaon Park. 



Lawyer Amod Vora of Rambaugh Colony and Singh have registered cross complaints against each other with the Shivajinagar police station. 



According to the police, Singh had come to the court to attend a hearing in a case filed by Yashwant Samaj Kalyan co-op housing society. The case filed against Vijay Kakade and others pertains to ownership of a piece of land at Wanowrie 



When the case came up for hearing before civil judge (senior division) A N Sontakke, lawyers Eknath Javir and Vora, representing the defendants, moved an application seeking adjournment. When Vora walked out of the court, Singh accosted him and thrashed him for seeking the adjournment. The police have registered complaints of non-cognizable offence against Vora and Singh, under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.

Brother lawyers should condem the attack. The Civil Court Bar Association should pass a resolution condemning the attack.
