Lawyers of Allahabad High Court went on a day's strike today to protest against Thursday's lathicharge in Allahabad in which over a dozen advocates and media persons were injured.
The decision to abstain from work was taken at a meeting of the High Court Bar Association on Friday morning.
The lawyers took out a march towards the High Court building and blocked traffic on the adjacent Grand Trunk Road.
Over a dozen lawyers and a couple of mediapersons were injured in lathi-charge by police which clashed with the advocates here over movement curbs in a court for filing of nomination papers for Uttar Pradesh assembly polls.
