The Supreme Court on Monday expressed its displeasure over Odisha police for its failure to handle the lawyers’ protest and reportedly said it would deploy central forces if Odisha police failed to control the situation.

It asked the Odisha DGP and inspector general of police to present themselves via video conferencing on Wednesday.

However, DGP Sunil Kumar Bansal is yet to make any comment.

Earlier, the SC had asked the Bar Council of India to suspend the licenses of agitating lawyers in several districts of the state.

Meanwhile, other bar associations in different districts staged peaceful protests in front of the different district and session courts.
