City lawyers demand law to protect them in state

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Aug 07 2018: The lawyers of the Mangalore Bar Association staged a protest in the court premises here condemning the death of fellow lawyer Ajith Naik in Dandeli, on August 6, Monday.



"Though Karwar police have arrested an accused in the murder, all the absconding accused should be captured soon and brought before the law. Increased attacks on advocates have put lawyers in fear," said General Secretary of Mangalore Bar Association Dinakar Shetty addressing the gathering at the protest.

"The state government should provide a compensation of Rs 25 lakh to Ajith Naik’s family and police must hold a transparent probe into the murder," he demanded and called for the Karnataka state government to enact a law on the lines of Advocates Protection Act passed by many other states, to provide security for lawyers in the state.
