New Delhi: Judicial work in all six district courts complexes in Delhi is likely to be affected today as the lawyers body has decided to abstain from work, protesting the shifting of Family Courts outside Karkardooma courts premises.
"Co-ordination committee has decided that all District Courts (six) will abstain from work on Monday (February 10), in support of Shahdara Bar Association, against the shifting of family courts from court premises," Vice Chairman of the Co-ordination Committee of All District Court Bar Associations of Delhi, Arun Rathi said.
Shahdara Bar Association observed two days strike last week and has demanded shifting back of the Family Courts from the new building in Vishwas Nagar in East Delhi to Karkardooma courts complex.
Shahdara lawyers' body had consulted the Co-ordination Committee of All District Court Bar Associations of Delhi, after which the committee decided to support and strike from work tomorrow at all court complex here, Rathi said.
The committee said there was enough vacant space in the Karkardooma complex as several rooms were unoccupied and family courts can be set up there. There was no need for moving family courts to any other premises.
As per a recent notification of Delhi government, the Lieutenant Governor, in consultation with the Delhi High Court, had notified the establishment of "one Family Court each for Central District at Tis Hazari Court Complex, East and North East Districts at Vishwas Nagar Family Court Complex, one Family Court for Shahdara District at Karkardooma Court Complex and two Family Courts for West District at Tis Hazari Court Complex".
