Due to the behaviour of protesting lawyers, any hope of creating an Orissa High Court bench in Sambalpur lost: Supreme Court

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court expressed concern about the disorderly movement being led by lawyers in Samblapur, Odisha, who are advocating for the establishment of a permanent Orissa High Court bench in the area.

The actions of the lawyers, according to a bench made up of Justices SK Kaul and AS Oka, ended any chance of a bench being established.

The Court also observed that the police authorities did not uphold their responsibility to maintain peace and order and questioned why lawyers were receiving special treatment.
