Chief Justice Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta on Tuesday called upon the advocates of Seemandhra and Telangana regions not to resort to any agitations within and around the High Court. He was reacting to unruly incidents at the HC.

On Sept 6, Seemandhra and pro-Telangana advocates clashed on the court premises with Telangana advocates trying to prevent the ‘human chain’ proposed by Samaikyandhra advocates from Madina building to City College circle.

Some Telangana lawyers belonging to other courts assaulted them. Later, both the groups submitted written complaints to the chief justice.

The CJ called a meeting on Tuesday evening with members of both the groups and suggested that they follow the earlier order of the High Court for maintaining decorum. Sengupta stressed the need of upholding the dignity of the institution.

As per the order, processions, dharnas, protests and slogans are prohibited within the court premises. The prohibited area covers all three sides of the High Court.

Justice G Rohini, senior most judge of the High Court, High Court Advocates’ Association president Giridhar Rao and others participated in the meeting. Senior counsels CV Mohan Reddy, SR Ashok and Bhaskara Lakshmi represented the Seemandhra advocates, while M Rajender Reddy, Gandra Mohan Rao and Jyoti Kiran represented Telangana advocates.
