The city police on Thursday afternoon arrested two people, who had allegedly picked up a quarrel with advocates over parking their car inside the City Civil Court premises.

Soon after Venugopal and Jagadeesh were arrested, they were produced before a Magistrate and remanded in judicial custody. Venugopal and Jagadish had applied for registration of a weekly magazine. They had come to the court to take a Notary’s signature on some documents. They had parked their car, which had the ‘Press’ logo on it at the parking area inside the court premises.

Police said some advocates after noticing ‘Press’ logo on the car reportedly questioned them as to why they have parked their car at a place reserved for advocates. In the melee, the car was damaged. In their complaint, the advocates claimed that the duo tried to assault them, police said.

Venugopal and Jagadeesh are natives of Vittalenahalli in Channapatna taluk. According to a police officer, when they were produced before the Magistrate, but no advocate appeared on their behalf. Bangalore Advocates Association President K N Subbareddy said, “They had parked the vehicle haphazardly in the area that is reserved for the advocates. When advocates asked them, they claimed they are from the media and know the Magistrate. They argued with the advocates unreasonably and forced the advocates to take them to the Magistrate.”

Reddy said the Magistrate did not know them. They also failed to show their ID cards or name their media house, he contended.
