New Delhi: The work at Dwarka district court here remained paralysed on Friday with lawyers protesting the Delhi government's decision followed by High Court order to shift six police station from its "jurisdiction and allocating the same to other courts".

"Justice at door step was the guiding principle behind Apex Court passing direction... regarding bifurcation of Delhi into nine judicial districts. The idea was that justice at door step would help dispense easy and inexpensive justice to common people.

"However, the notification issued by the Delhi Government dated September 11, 2012 followed by an order of Delhi High Court on February 19, 2013 seems to be mocking at justice at door step principle envisaged by the Supreme Court in 2000," Dwarka Bar Association Secretary P S Singh said.

The High Court order is been implemented from Friday. The agitating lawyers, who decided to abstain from work, said that as a result of irrational and illogical bifurcation, people concerned, forming the part of six police stations, are likely to face a tough situation for themselves in coming days.

The Dwarka bar association leaders also said, "It would delay in delivery of justice for common people of six police station." Dwarka Court Bar Association president Naresh C Sharma said, "In order to protest against the irrational and illogical bifurcation and resultant hardship caused to common people of six police stations, Dwarka Court bar Association has called for complete strike and has also decided to observe the day as a black day."
