Lawyers submit petition to DCP, demand SI’s arrest
The association members have boycotted court proceedings for more than a week, and have been unrelenting in their demand for the suspension of SI Yellalinga.
A group of 200 advocates met DCP Vishnuvardhana on Monday, and submitted the petition. “We will have another meeting at the bar association office on Tuesday, and decide on the future course of action,” Ramamurthy said.
DCP Vishnuvardhana said, “We have booked an FIR against SI Yellalinga following a complaint from the lawyers, and have relocated him to another station. The Bar members, however, are demanding his suspension, and submitted a petition seeking the same.”
