New Delhi: Vikram Singh Chauhan’s patriotism catapulted to a notch higher when he undertook the responsibility of pronouncing justice in the JNU protest case and took to violence as Kanhaiya Kumar, the JNUSU president, was being taken to the Patiala House court.

His frenzied approach garnered applauds among groups who believe that anti-nationals like the JNU students should be taught a lesson such that they avoid taking anti-India stand. On Thursday, lawyers from the Shahdara Bar Association felicitated Chauhan for his approach towards the issue.

According to media reports, lawyers of Shahdara Bar association led a candle march outside the gate of Karkardoma court that was attended by Chauhan. The president of the bar association garlanded Chauhan and assured him of their undue support.

However, the District Bar Coordination Committee (DBCC) has condemned the violence that took place in the premise of  the local Court.  Further, the committee rubbished the involvement of lawyers in the scuffle and has demanded a thorough investigation into the matter.

Denouncing the violence on the fateful day, Advocate RK Wadhwa, chairman of the committee said in a press release that the committee has requested the Chief Justice of India to look over the situation and asked that entry to the court premises should be well monitored, and security of judicial officers and lawyers should be a matter of prime concern.
