Lawyers at the Calcutta High Court continued to boycott the court of Justice Girish Gupta for the sixth day today alleging misbehaviour and demanded that he apologise to the Bar.
“There is no solution in sight to the stalemate so far,” Calcutta High Court Bar Association secretary Rana Mukherjee told PTI.
A new secretary would take over tomorrow replacing Mukherjee.
“Let us see whether any solution is reached after the new secretary takes over,” Mukherjee said.
“Owing to misbehaviour and insult meted out to advocates for a pretty long time, we took a resolution to abstain and refrain from attending the court of Justice Girish Gupta,” he said.
The Bar Association wrote to Chief Justice Manjula Chellur that lawyers would not attend the court of Justice Girish Gupta till he apologises to the Bar (lawyers), according to Mukherjee.
Justice Gupta sat in his court room in the morning and matters were called according to the list.
But as lawyers were absent from the court, he rose and retired to his chamber later in the day.
