Answering the call made by the district bar association (DBA), lawyers in the district and subordinate courts observed a pen down strike on Friday.

Lawyers observed strike to protest the Enforcement Directorate's raid conducted at the house of Mukesh Mittal, a Chandigarh-based advocate, said DBA president Shiam Singh.

Lawyers blocked entry points all court rooms at the judicial complex. No advocate was allowed to enter the courtrooms, said sources.

Meanwhile, with advocates disrupting the normal functioning of the court, litigants complained they were suffering.
