Very rarely that black coats and khaki clash outside the court. But it happened in national capital, Delhi where police and advocates clashed at Tis Hazarika courts complex  over a vehicle parking dispute .

Police said 20 cops and eight lawyers and a journalist were injured in the clashes. The Delhi Bar Council  said One lawyer is critical another young lawyer was beaten in the lock-up. This is a clear case of police high-handedness, and all the cops involved should be dismissed and prosecuted.

Among the vehicles damaged were 12 motorcycles, eight prison vans and a police vehicle.

Police said violence sparked off around 2 pm when policemen objected to a lawyer parking his car in front of the lockup at the Tis Hazari court complex.

Irate lawyers barricaded themselves inside the court premises during the violence, preventing police and media persons from entering. Ten fire engines were summoned to douse the fire in the midst of the violence.

“We are custodians of the law too. We won’t take it lying down if they misbehave with us, said Delhi bar council chairman KC Mittal .Bar associations have condemned the incident and called for a one-day strike across all district courts in Delhi on Monday.
