BCI to examine misconduct charges against Delhi gang rape convicts’ lawyer

The Delhi bar council complaint against the December 16 rape convicts’ lawyer AP Singh was transferred to the BCI, which on Saturday issued a show-cause notice to Singh, reported the Hindu.

Singh had made sexist remarks to the media outside the Saket trial court that had convicted his clients, claiming that he would burn his daughter alive were she to be found having premarital sex or going out at night with a boyfriend. He later claimed that he was provoked into his remarks.

The BCI is examining whether his comments can attract the charge of “professional misconduct” under Section 35 of the Advocates Act.
