Earlier this month, lawyers allegedly thrashed a warden and an assistant warden for trying to issue them a challan over the violation of traffic rules.

Reportedly, the traffic wardens had stopped lawyers who were riding a vehicle on Jail Road over the violation of using a cellphone while driving and not using a seatbelt.

The warden tried to issue a challan over the violations. However, the lawyers resisted and this led to the exchange of hot words between both parties. The lawyers beat a warden and an assistant warden.

The matter was brought into the notice of Ghalib Market Police Station. Acting SHO said the parties had reached to conciliation and no case was registered.
