A parking row took place between police personnel and lawyers on Saturday November 2nd at New Delhi’s Tiz Hazari court. It was so bad that it escalated into a violent situation between the two sides and many vehicles were set on fire.
It was all about who was allowed to park where. The lawyer who started it, said he had the right to park his car at a particular Delhi parking spot. The policeman denied. There was a heated argument which turned into a fight. The lawyers set fire to a police van and other vehicles as officers ransacked lawyers’ chambers. Three lawyers were apparently shot, as police used batons on lawyers. At least 30 people were hurt. The lawyers then went on a strike in protest and said that they would not stop protesting until the police is arrested for this incident. The police personnel also staged a mass protest outside the Delhi Police headquarters.
The lawyers are asking for the arrest of police officials involved in the incident. Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik has asked everyone to maintain peace.
