A lawyer was stabbed in the Patiala House court premises in New Delhi by some unidentified people on Tuesday afternoon.
SK Arya, whose office is in Chamber 474 in the court complex, was attacked at around 2.45 pm near gate No 6 of Patiala House, barely 100 metres from the Tilak Marg police station near the heart of New Delhi.
He was admitted to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital where his condition was reported to be serious.
According to the police, Arya had called some people to his chamber in the morning to discuss the water supply problem in their area.
"We don't know which village the people belonged to and why they attacked the lawyer. We are investigating the matter," said a senior police official.
