GUWAHATI, Sept 2 - The Commissioner of Police (Guwahati), Mukesh Agarwal was summoned by the Gauhati High Court to oversee the �unruly scenes� witnessed in the court campus today.
The Commissioner of Police rushed to the High Court and had a discussion with the officials of the Registry of the High Court.
Members of the Gauhati High Court Bar Association (GHCBA) had reportedly gathered in front of Court No. 2, where Chief Justice (acting) K Sreedhar Rao was sitting in the division bench with Justice PK Saikia, creating a chaotic situation.
The association had recently announced its decision to abstain from the Court of Chief Justice (acting) K Sreedhar Rao over issues including transfer of PILs from the three neighbouring northeastern States to Guwahati.
In another development, in response to a PIL and writ petition filed by senior advocates Benu Dhar Das and Bhaskar Dev Konwar, a division bench of Justice T Vaiphei and Suman Shyam heard the matter.
The miscellaneous application was moved for drawing the attention of the court to the call of boycott of the Court of the Chief Justice as senior counsel Niloy Dutta, appearing for the association on August 26, had made a statement that there was no boycott of Court No. 2, i.e., of the acting Chief Justice.
Senior advocate BD Konwar also apprised the division bench that he was intimidated and obstructed from appearing before the Court of the acting Chief Justice, which was denied by the counsel of the association.
The division bench directed that Konwar shall not be obstructed by any member of the association or any member in their individual capacity from entering into Court No. 2 of the Chief Justice.
The PIL, along with the writ petition, is listed�for Friday�for further hearing.
