The Tis Hazari lawyer mob which allegedly assaulted a woman lawyer and her two north eastern clients is facing protests from hundreds of north eastern students and activists, reported the TOI.

Yesterday the protesters met the Bar Council of India’s (BCI) members to demand that the mob lawyers’ licenses be revoked, and presented a memorandum on the issue to them. The BCI promised action within a month.

Women lawyers' collectives, women's rights groups, and members of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU), Students Federation of India (SFI), All India Students Association (AISA) among others joined the protest, holding placards and shouting slogans such as 'Tis Hazari lawyers shame shame' and 'racism down down', according to the paper.

A delegation of women lawyers and lawyers from the Northeastern states  - senior advocates Indira Jaising and Meenakshi Arora, advocates Maneesha Dhir, Paul Roy Paske and the two women lady lawyers involved - met the Delhi High Court Chief Justice on Monday with their complaint against the incident, asserting that the incident amounts to contempt of court, reported the Express.

Around 30 lawyers at Tis Hazari district court assaulted one woman lawyer and her two clients, in the court complex, on Friday, as reported by NDTV.

The two clients – members of the North East Union - and the woman lawyer had gone to court to file a criminal case against a lawyer who had allegedly molested a Delhi University student from Nagaland, when they were “brutally attacked”.

The paper reported:

“According to the student's lawyer, the accused and some of his associates chased her for a while after which they slapped her and threatened her if she pursued the case any further.

"We could do a lot more but we have spared you," she said the mob told her.”

Delhi’s Tis Hazari district court lawyers yesterday boycotted work to protest against allegedly inflated electricity bills for power supplied to their chambers. The Delhi Bar Association (DBA) has demanded a roll back of the bills and to have them resent as domestic instead of non-domestic supply bills, reported the Times of India.

DBA honorary secretary Nitin Ahlawat said:

“The strike is against the high-handedness of Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDA) and the indifferent attitude of the government of NCT of Delhi. The Executive Committee of Delhi Bar Association strongly condemns the illegal attitude and style of working of TPDDL. This private electricity company has unilaterally and without any notice to lawyers (consumers) had changed the tariff of electricity bills of lawyers chambers at Tis Hazari Courts, Delhi from domestic to non-domestic.”
