BANGALORE: While the situation was brought under control in the late afternoon, the issue escalated at 5.30 pm when the lawyers allegedly started pelting stones on the people again.

The lawyers, from the second and third floor of the six-storeyed City Civil Court building, started pelting stones at students and the general public who were passing through the road. City Police Commissioner B Jyothiprakash Mirji rushed to the spot immediately.

The lawyers demanded that the commissioner to divert all the cops stationed at the court complex to other areas, so that all lawyers  in the complex return houses peacefully.

To pacify the lawyers, Mirji diverted half of the cops to the Mysore Bank Circle and the rest to  K R Circle.

 However, it seemed like a plot by the lawyers, because as soon as the cops left the court premises, the lawyers allegedly set fire to a number of public vehicles and two-wheelers parked there.

Hearing about this, the police rushed back to the spot. City Police Commissioner Mirji also came again. As they were all waiting for the lawyers to descend, many of the guilty lawyers were said to have bought new shirts from small hawkers stationed behind the court complex and escaped through the backdoors.
