Sukhdev Vyas, a senior advocate of the Rajasthan High Court, died on Tuesday.
The Senior Counsel collapsed on the grounds of the High Court.
The General Secretary of the Rajasthan High Court Advocate's Association in Jodhpur, Advocate Darshan Ram, has called for a work stoppage in the Rajasthan High Court, the District and Sessions Court in Jodhpur, and other subordinate courts, as a sign of respect towards their departed colleague.
Also lawyers have abstained from work for the day as a show of respect to the late Senior Advocate Sukhdev Vyas. Chandra Shekhar Kotwani, the Election Officer, wrote to the Registrar General of the High Court, informing him of the situation.
"In this moment of grief, the entire members of the Bar as a mark of respect to departed soul will not work in the Court today," the letter read.
Therefore, lawyers would not be able to appear before the High Court and subordinate Courts as a mark of respect, the communication said.
Team LawStreet pays its heartfelt condolence to the departed soul. May his soul rest in peace.
