Taking a very serious notice of the incident which took place in Etah, Uttar Pradesh a few days back, the Bar Council of India has passed a resolution unanimously condemning the attack on a lawyer by the UP Police and has called upon the Chief Justice of Supreme Court and Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court to take immediate steps to find out the police personnel guilty and sought directions to the state government for their suspension, transfer and removal.
It may be noted that the police broke open the door of the house and had dragged and pulled an Advocate (who was in Advocate's dress) and had assaulted him mercilessly. The video of this incident had got viral recently.
The Bar Council said, "There is no limit to such atrocities of Uttar Pradesh Police and it has crossed all limits. The video of this incident got viral and the entire nation witnessed it.
