Several Karnataka High Court lawyers on Monday protested against continuance of Chief Justice PD Dinakaran, facing allegations of land grabbing, forcing him to suspend the proceedings and leave the hall.

Defying an order of the High Court, the lawyers abstained from court proceedings in response to a call given by the Advocates Association Bangalore (AAB) in consonance with a resolution it passed last week to protest Dinakaran's continuance.

The resolution said the lawyers wanted to "uphold the dignity and integrity of the judiciary".

Dinkaran, who was hearing cases, suspended the proceedings and later left the court hall after a section of advocates resorted to slogan shouting against him.
