The security cover provided to judges in Madhya Pradesh is set to be beefed up following a rise in violent incidents in courts in the recent past.
Recently, a convict attacked a judge soon after he delivered the judgement at Begumganj in Raisen district.
Alarmed over the rise in the number of attacks on judges and violence in court premises across the state, a delegation of judges met Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan Saturday to voice their concern.
During the meeting, the chief minister assured the judges that their safety was one of the prime concerns of his government.
Chouhan is reported to have directed the Principal Secretary (Home) Satya Prakash to look into the matter, ensure security of the judges and post adequate security personnel in court premises.
