New Delhi: Taking suo moto cognizance of the alleged harassment of a woman IAS officer from Mizoram inside the Saket Court premises in Delhi on Thursday, the Bar Council of India (BCI) has served notice to the lawyers who were involved in the incident.
The BCI asked the lawyers to show cause why their certificates of practice be not suspended even as the Saket Bar Association claims that it was the husband of the officer who slapped an advocate that led to the incident.
The 2014-batch officer, who is posted in Mizoram, was allegedly stopped by a group of advocates and pushed after a heated argument. Her husband was beaten up when he tried to intervene, said reports.
An FIR was registered at the Saket police station. The woman reportedly handled a property-related case during her earlier posting in the city.
If reports are to be believed, the other party of the case got into an argument with the woman and her husband. They even stopped their car as they came out from court.
