Lawyers and police clashed at the Tis Hazari Court complex here on Saturday during which at least 20 police personnel and several lawyers were injured while many vehicles vandalised or set on fire, according to officials.Tensions between Delhi Police and lawyers are high after Saturday’s incident at Tis Hazari Court where both groups engaged in a major scuffle. The violence resulted in several vehicles, including those of the police being torched and at least 25 people injured. The lawyers claimed on Saturday that the police opened fire at them while maintaining that ‘anti-social elements’ (not lawyers) torched the police vehicles.
