Patiala House Court witnessed round 2 of #LawlessLawyers on Wednesday.
Lawyers shouted slogans of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai‘ and ‘Vande Mataram‘ as they barged into the court compound and also pelted stones at reporters outside, in defiance of the Supreme Court order banning protests.
JNU Student’s Union President Kanhaiya Kumar was also manhandled as per media reports.
And the police was again accused of turning a blind eye to the proceedings.
Round 1 unfolded on Monday when media personnel were manhandled and beaten up at the Patiala House Court premises by a group of lawyers. When this entire event was unfolding, the police is alleged to have taken no action.
This is how Twitter reacted to this lawless spectacle outside the Patiala House Court.
