Sitapur (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Nov 1 (ANI): A case has been registered against 12 lawyers from Uttar Pradesh for allegedly beating a police official.
A video which went viral over social media shows few lawyers beating a police officer with shoes and later abusing and threatening him.
The lawyers had barged into the chambers of district judge Rajendra Prasad to assault the sub-inspector.
The protests from the lawyers erupted after a building in Sitapur was sealed by the district administration, said Sitapur Superintendent of Police Prabhakar Chaudhary.
There is a club in the building where the police officials found many cartons of unaccounted liquor. Two lawyers, who own the club jointly, were detained and brought to a local police station for questioning.
