A DIVISION bench of the High Court comprising Justice OP Srivastava and Justice Shailendra Saxena, while fixing April 27 next for hearing Contempt cases against 13 city lawyers, has called upon the District Judge, Lucknow to file report regarding normal functioning in the District Court by the date fixed.

Advocate General SMA Kazmi also informed the Bench that the District Court lawyers’ strike had been withdrawn and normal functioning had resumed.

It will be my endeavor to maintain and uphold the dignity of the Bench and the Bar and to ensure security and safety on the court campus, the AG added.

He also informed the Bench that a meeting of the District Judge, the police and the District administration, regarding security on the court campus had already been held and things would get right soon.

Taking AG’s assurance, the Bench, while desisting to pass any strict orders, postponed the hearing to April 27.

It, however, declined to recall its earlier interim order, banning the entry of 13 city lawyers in the court and posted the same for consideration on the date fixed.

Meanwhile, some lawyers filed their power (Vakalatnama) on behalf of their colleagues against whom contempt notices have been issued. The matter will come up for hearing on April 27, next.

Nominated: Deepshikha has been nominated as a Railway advocate to conduct cases on behalf of the Railways at the Lucknow bench of the High Court. She is also a Standing Counsel for the State at the High Court.
