New Delhi: Lawyers on Wednesday observed a one-day token strike in all the six district courts in the capital protesting the arrest of Anna Hazare and non-inclusion of judiciary in the Lokpal bill, interrupting the proceedings in the 2G scam.

The striking lawyers entered the court room and requested Special CBI Judge OP Saini and defence counsel to adjourn the proceedings for the day in support of their token strike.

The Special court, which was scheduled to hear arguments on charges against Asif Balwa and Rajeev Agarwal, Directors of a DB group company and accused in the 2G spectrum scam, adjourned the matter till 1 pm due to the strike.

The Co-ordination Committee of All Bar Associations of Delhi, has condemned the government's act in arresting Anna, saying it was done to curtail his fundamental right to protest against rampant corruption.

"The strike in all the six district courts is successful and no work is being done at all. We will organize a 'dharna' today at Tiz Hazari Courts complex from 12 noon to 2 pm," Sanjeev Nassiar, Secretary General of the committee, said.
