A group of lawyers beat up a man in the chambers of Additional District and Sessions Judge Najir Javed on Wednesday. Karamat Ali went to court to attend proceedings in a land grab case. Lawyers led by Advocate Javed Iqbal Bhatti argued with him and then hit him.
He ran to the judge’s chambers where lawyers beat him and handed him over to Islmapura police. Bhatti told the police that Karamat had brought 20 people with him and they attacked the lawyers first. He said two of his colleagues were injured. Karamat said he was innocent and was beaten when he came for a hearing.
