JAMMU: The work in the State High Court (HC) Jammu Wing as well as District Court Complex was affected due to strike by the members of J&K High Court Bar Association in support of the call given by the Bar Council of India to protest against the recommendations of the Law Commission of India in terms whereof amendments to the provisions of the Advocate Act 1961, have been proposed.
While protesting, the lawyers burnt the copies of the recommendations made by the Law Commission of India and raised slogans against the proposed recommendations.
B. S. Slathia, Senior Advocate and President, J&K High Court Bar Association, Jammu, termed the proposed recommendations as misconceived which are required to be withdrawn forthwith. He further appealed to the members of the Legal Fraternity to get united against these draconian and undemocratic proposals made by the Law Commission. The protesting lawyers held a march from J&K High Court which later culminated in the District Court Complex. Thereafter, J&K High Court Bar Association, Jammu, handed over a memorandum to Union Government through the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir. Office bearers of J&K High Court Bar Association Jammu including Sachin Gupta (Vice President), Prem N. Sadotra (General Secretary), Himanshu Sharma (Joint Secretary) and Chetan Misri (Treasurer) besides other advocates participated in the march.
