Chennai: Various organisations of lawyers jointly announced the suspension of their month-long strike after a meeting on Thursday evening. The decision came after the Madras High Court's orders on Wednesday to suspend two senior police officials, AK Vishwanathan (additional commissioner) and J Rama Subramani, and an appeal by the court's full bench to lawyers to immediately call off the agitation, according to advocates spearheading the struggle.
"The strike is withdrawn respecting the requests of the full bench, and all of us will return to work on Monday onwards. Our struggle, however, will continue against illegal action by police officials, including the demand to suspend and prosecute Commissioner K Radhakrishnan and Director General of Police KP Jain," lawyer T Mohan said.
