Representation by Hemant Goswami to Chandigarh Administration to file an appeal to the Supreme Court of India

-----------------------------------------------------

The issue in brief:

Asserting that law does not bestow "special privileges" on advocates and that "equality before law" should prevail, an application has been filed in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, requesting its intervention in the dispute between the High Court lawyers and Chandigarh Police.

To present the "other point of view", Hemant Goswami, a social activist, has requested the court that he may be made a respondent in the public interest litigation (PIL) arising out of the suo motu notice taken by the High Court.

Last week, to end the stalemate between the lawyers and Chandigarh Administration, a division bench comprising Chief Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri and Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain had taken note of the "untoward incident" wherein a bunch of High Court lawyers had thrashed a Chandigarh Police head constable in full public gaze.

The High Court also stayed the investigation into the FIR registered by the Chandigarh Police against former additional advocate general Rupinder Singh Khosla and 19 other lawyers.
