THE All India Lawyers Union, Delhi unit condemned the heinous attack on its president, a well known senior lawyer and former mayor of Kolkata, Bikas Ranjan Bhattacharya by the Trinamool Congress cadre in West Bengal on April 1.
The targeted attack, AILU leaders said, was because of his stellar role in exposing the Saradha Scam and Narada Scam. Ironically he was attacked while he was on his way to the village where the victims of the unjust land acquisition were protesting and he was to render legal aid and legal advice to them. Bikas Ranjan Bhattacharya was taken out of his car and assaulted by 20-30 cadre of Trinamool Congress.
AILU Delhi unit held a demonstration in front of the Banga Bhawan on April 5 and submitted a memorandum to the principal officer, Pritam Saha demanding immediate registration of FIR against the culprits. The demonstration was addressed by the president of the Delhi unit, Devraj Singh and Som Dutta Sharma, all India general secretary. The union has decided to formulate the future course of action.
