NIA summons Bar chief again, lawyers to go on strike today
SRINAGAR, Sep 13: National Investigation Agency (NIA) has again summoned president Kashmir High Court Bar Association Mian Qayoom to its headquarters in New Delhi tomorrow

To protest the “harassment” of its president, lawyers’ body announced that its members shall stay away from court work from tomorrow till Qayoom returns.

A spokesman of the lawyers’ body said a general body meeting of its members was held in the high court bar complex.

“All the members unanimously decided that since the NIA investigation and calling of bar president to New Delhi, again, is aimed at harassing and humiliating the bar leadership and the purpose behind registration of the criminal case and raiding of houses of pro-freedom leadership and their activists and dragging them to New Delhi, is to intimidate and threaten them so that they give up their support to the principled cause of people of Kashmir and their inalienable right of self-determination, therefore as a mark of protest, the Bar members shall observe strike on 14th of September 2017 and continue the same till the president would return from Delhi,” a spokesman of the association said.

It was also decided that the lawyers would meet again in the morning of September 15 in the high court bar room to discuss the issue further, he said.

In order to show their solidarity with the Bar President, it was also decided that the team of lawyers, which had accompanied him New Delhi on September 7 shall again accompany him and will remain with him till he returns home.
