VISAKHAPATNAM:The members of Visakhapatnam Bar Association have decided to abstain from work at the District Courts Complex in the city Monday in protest against the physical assault upon two judges belonging to Andhra Pradesh by the advocates of Telangana state on Friday. The advocates condemned the attacks and demanded action against the erring advocates.

Advocates hailing from Telangana state hurled eggs and tomotoes at Rangareddy district judge M Gandhi and metropolitan sessions judge Nagarjuna demanding bifurcation of the High Court. Several other court staff hailing from both the states also was attacked during the protests. The Telangana advocates have been on the agitation for the past one week in this regard.

Addressing newsmen here Sunday, Visakhapatnam Bar Association president J Pruthviraj and senior advocate Kuppili Muralidhar demanded action against the advocates responsible for demeaning and undermining the stature of free and independent judiciary, which was one of the cornerstone of Indian Constitution.

Though the advocates from Andhra Pradesh, too, want a separate High Court, they never resorted to such vicious attacks, they said.
