Cops, Lawyers Clash At Delhi's Tis Hazari Court, Police Car Set On Fire

New Delhi: A police car was set afire as lawyers clashed with cops at the Tis Hazari court complex in Old Delhi on Saturday afternoon over a parking dispute. Columns of smoke could be seen rising into the sky amid chaos on its premises, contributing to the city's already high pollution levels.
A lawyer who was reportedly injured in police firing has been admitted to the nearby St Stephen's Hospital, news agency ANI reported. 

The lawyers reportedly barricaded themselves inside the court premises, preventing police and mediapersons from entering. Taking the tense situation into account, police have locked several gates leading into the court complex.

According to sources, the trouble began when a lawyer entered into a dispute with some policemen over parking his car. While the lawyer was being taken into custody, a few of his colleagues tried to free him. Lawyers allege that the cops resorted to firing in an attempt to disperse them, following which at least one of the police cars stationed in the complex was set afire.
