Two lawyers were injured, one of them severely, after an undertrial attacked them with a sharp-edged weapon at CJM court in Bandipora district of north Kashmir.

The under-trial, identified as Noor Din Gojjar, along with his accomplices, attacked Public Prosecutor Advocate Shafiq Bhat and senior Advocate Jan Mohammad Mir, inside the court premises.

Public Prosecutor Adv. Shafiq got severly injured and has been referred to sub-district hospital Bandipora.

The attack took place when the under-trial was brought for hearing in a case at the CJM court here.

"The attack was pre-planned by Noor Din and his accomplices," alleged Jan Mohammad.

Meanwhile, Bar Association Bandipora went on strike and all the petition writers and computer operators also abstained from work demanding strict action against the attackers.

They alleged that the security personnel let the under-trials, including criminals, enter the court premises without proper frisking.
