Tis Hazari Court Row: Lawyer Tries Self-Immolation At Rohini Court

A lawyer tried self-immolation at Rohini Court in Delhi on Wednesday. The lawyer has been identified as Ashish Chaudhary. Sources say that he used some inflammable liquid to set himself on fire. But other lawyers saved him in time and took him to the dispensary situated within the court premises. Despite the burning sensation, the lawyer took part in protest against cops and was seen chanting ‘vakeel ekta zindabad’. According to Chaudhary, the policemen were using media and the FIRs to intimidate the lawyers. Citing the FIR filed over the Saket Court incident, Chaudhary alleged that FIR included stringent sections under robbery  to create pressure on the lawyers.
