Delhi Police Identifies Woman Lawyer Accused Of Torching A Police Bike During The Tis Hazari Clash

The Delhi Police has identified a woman lawyer who was alleged to incinerate a police bike during a clash between lawyers and police at Tis Hazari Court Complex in November last year but no action has yet been sanctioned against her, officials said on 19th January, 2020.
They relied on the declaration of the High Court of Delhi, which has made it clear that no "coercive action" can be taken against any lawyer in connection with the violent clash on November 2, adding, the police cannot take action also because a judicial inquiry is in progress into the incident.
The crime branch identified the alleged lawyer as in one of the CCTV recordings, the lawyer is seen torching the police motorcycle parked outside the lock-up in the Tis Hazari Court premises at 4.14 pm. 

In another footage, an advocate is seen bringing a sack full of stones at 4.19 pm. Shortly thereafter, a group of lawyers start pelting stones on police personnel as the fires rage.
As a repercussion of the clash, thirteen police motorcycles were torched during the brawl that day.

A senior DCP-rank officer can be seen mishandled as the CCTV footage progresses to 4.22 pm.

A special investigation team was formed by Delhi Police to probe into the clash and 7 FIRs, which included the charge of attempt to murder, were lodged in connection with the incident.

As an immediate result of the probe one assistant sub-inspector was suspended and another police officer was transferred for their alleged involvement in the incident.
