What North Delhi Lawyers’ Association said in this regard? 

In a statement, North Delhi Lawyers’ Association said regular incidents of fire in court premises were a scary affair for everyone who visits courts, including petitioners, advocates and judges.

The lives of thousands of people are at stake due to these incidents, it said.

"Each district court has its own maintenance committee and the fire department has a responsibility to check all equipment is functional. Frequent incidents of fire in court premises indicate that there is a need to pay special attention towards fire safety in courts, which is not taken care of by the authorities," Advocate Vineet Jindal, secretary of the lawyers’ association, said.
