Lawyers to continue cease work stir till Monday
Cuttack: The agitating lawyers on Wednesday threatened to continue their ongoing cease work agitation across the state till Monday.
The protest was launched by the Odisha High Court Bar Association after a lawyer was allegedly beaten by police personnel near Nua Bazar bridge in Cuttack on August 28. Later, lawyers across the state extended supports to the agitation.
While a probe is underway into the allegations of the lawyers, Cuttack CP Akhileswar Singh has suspended two constables named BK Samal and UK Bhuyan and havildar PK Behera in connection with the alleged attack.
Although several meetings were held to end the spat between the agitators and the cops, it failed to yield any result. The agitators are demanding the arrest of the cops involved in the incident.
