B'lore: 9 lawyers taken into custody

Bangalore, Mar 14: Nine advocates were taken into preventive custody on Wednesday when they tried to stage a dharna in the city civil court premises, where prohibitory orders are still in force after the Mar 2 violence when mediapersons and police personnel were attacked by lawyers.

"We have taken nine lawyers into preventive custody as they were trying to stage a protest in the city civil court complex where prohibitory orders are in force till Mar 18", Deputy Commissoner of Police (Central Division) G Ramesh told PTI.

Sixtyfive persons, including 52 police personnel, were injured when lawyers went on a rampage on Mar 2, protesting presence of mediapersons to cover the appearance of former Minister and mining baron Janardhan Reddy in a mining case in the city civil court complex. Following the incident, prohibitory orders were imposed in and around the civil court complex premises.
