The video of this incident had got viral recently. Stating that “there is no limit to such atrocities of Uttar Pradesh Police and it has crossed all the limits”, the Press Release adds that similar incidents have been witnessed in West Bengal, Bihar and almost all state and that “such actions of the police is rather worse than the crime committed by any hardened criminal/s.” The Press Release also states, “The act of police of Uttar Pradesh is shocking, this cannot be expected from the protectors of Law and Order. The brutality clearly shows that the police personnel of Etah were acting with some planning with some ulterior motive.” While requesting the CJI & CJ of Allahabad High Court to take actions, the BCI has also added that its request hasn’t been considered by Uttar Pradesh Government. “Can’t Tolerate Such Atrocities Anymore” The BCI has stated in its Press Release that it “cannot tolerate such atrocities anymore and if the Judiciary and the Government are ignoring such atrocities on the Lawyers or even on common man, the Bar will have no option except to come on roads.” It further states that the Council has also resolved to write to Hon’ble Mr. Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister to take suitable action in the matter and make immediate suitable laws for providing protection to the Lawyers of the country. Other proposed steps of the Council The Bar Council of India has resolved and stated that the entire Legal Fraternity is in support of Bar Council of Uttar Pradesh and Lawyers of Uttar Pradesh on this issue.The Council is going to convene a joint meeting of representatives of all the State Bar Councils through Video-Conferencing to decide the future course of action within 3-4 days.The Joint Meeting shall also consider the inaction of Union and State Governments who have failed to provide any financial assistance to Lawyers during these bad days of pandemic. The Press Release states that the Apex Court too, “has not done anything to help the Lawyers and the writ filed by Bar Council of India and suo-motu matter are still pending.” “We only wanted some interest free or soft rated loan from Government for the needy Lawyers, but, even that is not being done by the Government”, the Press Release states. Regarding Court Proceedings (Physical, not Virtual) Expressing “serious concern on the intention of Government in planning to introduce the system of Virtual Hearings of Court proceedings and to give a go-bye to physical hearings”, the Press Release says, “The Rules and proposal to make this system of virtual hearings permanent feature can never be accepted by Advocates of the country. Such proposal would be very dangerous and may lead to putting/ giving the entire system in the pockets of some selected ‘big Law Firms’ and few other ‘blessed Lawyers’. The Indian Bar is not going to accept it at any cost. ‘Physical Hearings’ should be resumed throughout the country without any delay” Regarding Foreign Lawyers & Law Firm Stating that the proposal of Government to allow the Foreign Law Firms has been rejected by Bar Council of India on several occasions in past and all the State Bar Councils of the country and Bar Council of India have been stating and replying that this is not in the interest of the Indian Bar, the Press Release questions the move to raise this issue in the Parliament. Calling it a matter of serious concern for the .Indian Bar, Bar Council of India has stated that “unless the interest of the Indian Lawyers who practice right from the Lower Courts to the highest Court of the land are protected and Indian Law Firms/Lawyers are allowed to practice and establish in the bigger countries like USA, UK, Australia and other European countries without any rigorous/impractical conditions, on reciprocal basis, the Indian Bar will not allow the foreign Lawyers or Law Firms to establish here.” Furthermore, the Press Release adds that the area of practice of foreign lawyers has to be very limited, “so as to not to affect the Indian Lawyers practice in Civil, Criminal and other Laws.” Lastly, it states, “Lawyers and Law Firms of some of the irrelevant countries are applying for practice in India, while there is no scope for Indian Law Firms or Lawyers to practice in those countries and it would open a flood gate for them in our country without any benefit to Indian Lawyers.” The Joint Meeting of representatives of State Bar Councils and High Court Bar Associations would be considering all the issues in coming week.Click Here To Download Press ReleaseRead Press ReleaseSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

FIFA World Cup 2014: Nigeria knock out debutants Bosnia with 1-0 win

first_imgPeter Odemwingie celebrates after scoring the opening goal for Nigeria Nigeria eliminated Bosnia-Herzegovina from World Cup contention with a 1-0 win over the tournament newcomers on Saturday, with Peter Odemwingie’s first-half goal getting the African champions closer to the knockout stage. Odemwingie sealed Nigeria’s first victory at a World Cup since 1998 – spanning 10 matches – by finishing from close range in the 29th minute after one of a string of powerful runs by fellow striker Emmanuel Emenike.MATCH COMMENTARY Bosnia faded after a bright start, during which star striker Edin Dzeko had a goal contentiously disallowed for offside, and is still without a point in Group F following a 2-1 defeat to Argentina in its opener.A draw would have given the Bosnians something to play for in its last group match, against Iran, but Dzeko had a shot tipped onto the post by goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama in the final few seconds, ending their hopes.Nigeria needs a point against Argentina on Wednesday to be guaranteed a spot in the Round of 16 – and a surprise win would secure top spot in the group.With Africa’s five teams starting the World Cup with just one win from their first eight matches, the continent was able to enjoy a rare success in Brazil.There had also been added motivation for Stephen Keshi’s team, which was seeking to boost the spirits of Nigerians back home in the wake of a suicide bombing attack at a World Cup viewing site in the northeast of their country. At least 14 people died in the blast.advertisementNigeria was too strong and experienced for the Bosnians, whose soft center in defense failed to deal with the power of Emenike in energy-sapping conditions in the western Brazilian city of Cuiaba.And the recall of Odemwingie, who was impressive as a substitute in the 0-0 draw with Iran, gave Nigeria an extra goal threat – demonstrated by his calm finish.Emenike powered past the tame challenge of Bosnia defender Emir Spahic and charged down the right flank before crossing for Odemwingie, who shot first-time through the legs of goalkeeper Asmir Begovic – his teammate at English club Stoke.By that stage, Bosnia-Herzegovina should have been ahead, with Dzeko finding the net in the 21st only for the goal to be ruled out for offside. Replays appeared to show Dzeko was level with the last defender.Otherwise, Dzeko’s finishing was off-key and with their star striker struggling, the Bosnians looked disheartened in the early stages of the second half.Begovic kept his team in the game with saves from Michael Babatunde and Emenike before Bosnia-Herzegovina’s late rally created a good chance, Dzeko turning his marker in a crowded penalty area and side-footing a shot that was kept out by Enyeama.Team Lineups(from):Nigeria: Vincent Enyeama; Efe Ambrose, Joseph Yobo, Juwon Oshaniwa, Kenneth Omeruo; Ogenyi Onazi, John Obi Mikel; Ahmed Musa (Shola Ameobi, 65th), Peter Odemwingie, Michael Babatunde (Ejike Uzoenyi, 75th), Emmanuel EmenikeBosnia: Asmir Begovic; Toni Sunjic, Emir Spahic; Mensur Mujdza, Haris Medunjanin (Tino-Sven Susic, 64th), Miralem Pjanic, Muhamed Besic, Izet Hajrovic (Vedad Ibisevic, 57th), Zvjezdan Misimovic, Senad Lulic (Sejad Salihovic, 58th); Edin Dzekolast_img read more
