The Supreme Court Advocates on-Record Association (SCAORA) expressed deep anguish at the loss of lives and property in the recent clash of communal violence in north-east Delhi, claiming more than 40 lives and causing injury to more than 200 people.
SCAORA’s, executive committee offered their condolences to the victim’s families and asked its members to contribute generously for compensating and rehabilitating the victims and families that have suffered during the violence.
The lawyer’s body requested its members to generously contribute to its centralised funds as these funds would be further utilized in compensating victims of violence and also in the rehabilitation of the affected families.
With this, the bar body also said it will coordinate with district legal services authority (DLSA ) to provide round-the-clock legal assistance for the riot victims through the toll-free number 1516.
The bar body had visited the violence-affected areas of North East Delhi on Sunday after which the resolution was developed and honestly and sincerely appealed to each stakeholder, be it administration, the law enforcement agencies, the judiciary or public-spirited NGOs/individuals to take immediate steps in order to restore normalcy and faith in the rule of law, said the board lawyers body in a statement.
