Bar Council of India condemns UP Police assault on lawyer in Etah

A resolution has been passed by the Bar Council of India by strongly criticizing an attack on a lawyer in uniform by Uttar Pradesh Police. The Bar Council of India has also asked the Chief Justice of Supreme Court and Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court to take necessary actions immediately to find out the police official guilty and has also asked for directions to the State Government to take an action in the form of suspension, removal or transfer against the accused police officials.

The Bar Council of India has strongly opposed an incident which took place in Etah, Uttar Pradesh, where an advocate was dragged and assaulted mercilessly by Uttar Pradesh Police. Union Home Minister, Amit Shah has also been asked by the BCI to take necessary actions against the said matter and to make legislations to protect the lawyers of the country.

 The Council stated that, there is no limit to the crimes committed by the Uttar Pradesh Police and it has exceeded all boundaries. The footage of this incident got viral, and the entire country had observed it.

The Council also stated that, not only Uttar Pradesh, but also Bihar, West Bengal and many more States had witnessed this type of treatment by the police officials. The Council also contended that this type of action cannot be expected from the protectors of law and order. According to the resolution, the Council will conduct a joint meeting with the representatives of state Bar Councils within 3 to 4 days to decide the future course of action.
