Bangalore: High drama was witnessed on Friday outside the civil court here when unruly lawyers attacked mediapersons and pelted stones damaging OB vans, leaving at least 20 scribes and police personnel injured.
A judicial probe was ordered by the state government after vehement media protests over the incident.
The court complex turned into a battle zone as the rampaging advocates targeted journalists, particularly electronic media crew, who had gathered to cover the appearance of mining baron G Janardhana Reddy before a court in an illegal mining case.
