Lawyers across Uttar Pradesh are set to go on a strike on Monday demanding for further investigation into recent attacks.

The strike follows the recent attacks and the murder of two lawyers - Shrawan Kumar Verma from Lucknow and Ashok Kumar Ahirvar from Hamirpur last week.

Ajay Kumar Shukla, a member of the Uttar Pradesh Bar Council said that the strike was to protest against the investigation into the two murders which has has so far resulted in no arrests.

Even the state government seemingly is not interested in expediting the probe, he added.

The Bar Council has also demanded that families of both lawyers be given Rs 45 lakh as financial aid, in lines with similar compensation given by the Akhilesh Yadav government to Mohammad Akhlaq, a Muslim man who was killed in Dadri last year on charges of consuming beef.

The lawyers have also threatened to further expand their agitation if their demands were not met and the culprits not nabbed at the earliest.
