Lawyers clash

Dec. 19: Lawyers backing and opposing a strike clashed in several places across Bengal today, turning court complexes into battlefields.

The worst incident in which a sub-divisional judicial magistrate was severely injured occurred on the Alipore court premises in Calcutta.

Two scuffling lawyers barged into the chamber of the sub-divisional judicial magistrate, Debabrata Sinha. Thinking that one of the lawyers was carrying a firearm, a police officer flung himself on Sinha to save him. But Sinha fell from the chair and suffered injuries on the head. He has been admitted to the intensive care unit of SSKM Hospital.

The lawyers have extended their strike till December 23.
