The New Delhi Bar Association’s “Holi Milan” celebrations inside Delhi’s Patiala House district court complex turned into a “show of flesh” when some male advocates joined hired dance girls performing on stage as part of the ceremony, reported The Hindu, no less.

Union law minister Kapil Sibal, who was the chief guest at the event, had already recited his two poems and left the venue by the time the controversial “sleaze show” began, while newly-elected Delhi High Court Bar Association president Rajiv Khosla announced a “helpline for lawyers” at the function.

The Hindu, publishing a blurry snapshot of the dance show featuring, apparently, a woman in tights, a sequinned skirt and a short sari blouse, quoted a female lawyer present as saying: “It was on the verge of obscenity. That some of the male members of our fraternity were clearly enjoying the show of flesh – unmindful of our presence – was disconcerting; more so because it was within the court premises which is also our workspace and during working hours.”
