He counted himself lucky as he had used the toilet thrice since morning.  Police who arrived at the spot at 4.20 pm, cordoned off the area to make way for the dog squad and finger print experts to do their job.

Advocates expressed their anger over lack of security arrangements in place in the court premises to pre-empt such incidents. B Shivanna, an advocate, said neither is there checking at gates nor CCTV cameras in the premises.
