DRAMA AS LAWYER SLAPS JUDGE IN COURT… OVER UNFAVOURABLE JUDGEMENT!!!

An Indian lawyer slaps judge at a Bombay High court over a judgement that did not go in his favour. The legal practitioner, Dinesh Parate is already facing a criminal contempt of court charge after the assault.

According to Afternoon Voice, Parate had accosted and slapped senior civil judge K R Deshpande outside a lift on the seventh floor of the Nagpur District and Sessions court around noon on Wednesday.

He then tried to run away but he was arrested by security operatives.

According to the police, the lawyer was not happy over the judge’s decision in a case.

Parate, an assistant public prosecutor, has been issued a notice seeking a response from him within six weeks as to why action for criminal contempt of court should not be taken against him.

The court also condemned the action of the lawyer, calling it an affront on the judiciary.

Justice Deshpande of the high court noted in his order that it was a serious matter where personal security of a judge was under threat.

“It is a threat to the independence of the judiciary. The rule of law is being undermined. Such outrageous conduct needs no tolerance,” the high court said.

“It causes or tends to cause obstruction or interference in the administration of justice, as it is the result of adjudication by the judge which has gone against Dinesh Parate,” Justice Deshpande said
