Coordination committees of all district bar associations decided to observe a day-long strike and demanded proper security in and around court complexes.

Advocate Sanjeev Nasiar, President of Tis Hazari court bar association, said lawyers met the district judge and demanded that more CCTV cameras should be installed in court complexes and they should function properly.

He said there was no CCTV camera in the area where the body of advocate Rajeev Sharma was found."The lawyers have taken the decision to meet high court judges on the security issue. A young advocate's body has been found in the court complex and he has been murdered. This is a serious issue. We are yet to know what he was doing here late night. All the lawyers have decided to abstain from work on Friday.

"Lawyers in all the six district courts in Delhi will not work on Friday," Nasiar said.The advocates said that police should also speed up the investigation.

Sharma, a resident of Rohini in northwest Delhi, was found dead outside an eatery in the Tis Hazari court complex in the morning and police have arrested two men who worked at the eatery in this connection.

They are being questioned to ascertain the exact sequence of events which led to the lawyer's murder, police said, adding that a case of murder has been registered.There were wounds on Sharma's head which were probably caused by a sharp object following a scuffle.
