The protests by Delhi Police personnel against attacks on them by lawyers spread on Tuesday and the situation has now led to the L-G of the city calling an emergency meet. Earlier today,  Delhi Police Commissioner, Amulya Patnaik, had to face the ire of lower ranks of the Delhi police who have been at the receiving end of violence by lawyers ever since the Tis Hazari clash on November 2 . Angry cops and their families protested outside the new police headquarters in the city.The police chief came down from his office and sought to pacify the protestors from a temporary podium, but to little effect.

After Saturday’s violence at the Tis Hazari court which saw injuries on both sides, attacks on cops continued on Monday as lawyers went on the rampage at several Delhi courts and parts of Uttar Pradesh as well.
