Odisha HC lawyers to continue cease-work till November 9


Cuttack: The Orissa High Court Bar Association has decided to continue the cease-work agitation of its lawyers till November 9. A decision in this regard was taken at a meeting of the association held here today.

The association will decide on its future course of action after the hearing of the High Court on the alleged assault of a lawyer by police personnel, which is scheduled to be held on November 9.

The court had earlier directed the Inspector General of Police, Odisha Crime Branch to complete investigation into the police-lawyer spat by November 9.

Notably, the agitating lawyers are demanding arrest of the police personnel accused in attack on advocate Debi Prasad Patnaik.
