Cuttack: There seems to be no let up in the lawyers-police spat in Cuttack, as the agitating lawyers have decided to intensify their stir demanding arrest of the cops involved in the attack on a lawyer here last month.

At a Press meet here, Orissa High Court Bar Association president Srikant Nayak today said that the lawyers would continue their cease-work stir and intensify their agitation in coming days untill the ‘errant’ cops are arrested. They also demand an impartial inquiry by a senior police official.

As part of the protest, the lawyers would stage demonstrations in front of all Government offices here tomorrow. They would also gherao Naveen Niwas on Thursday to press for their demand.

It may be mentioned that the bar association began the cease-work stir after a lawyer was beaten up by police near Nua Bazaar bridge here on August 28 morning. Later, Cuttack DCP DCP Akhileswar Singh had suspended two Constables and a Havildar for the police excess.
