Hundreds of angry lawyers later engaged in pitched battles with the police in and around the court premises. A constable received a bullet injury and about a dozen vehicles were damaged in the violence.
Sub-inspector Shailendra Singh, in-charge of Naribari police outpost, had gone to the district court in connection with a case. Witnesses said he had a heated argument with a group of lawyers near the stairs of the court building.
