“Police Act was misused by Kullu Police”, the Bar Association raised slogans in furtherance to the arrest of a Senior Lawyer

According to Kullu SP Gaurav Singh, senior advocate Chuneshwar Thakur was drunk & he refused to sign an alcohol test slip & misbehaved with police personnel. The Police had arrested Senior Lawyer Chuneshwar Thakur for reportedly obstructing the Police work.

In furtherance of this incident, the lawyers gathered in a large number under the banner of the Kullu Bar Association on 15th Nov. & raised slogans against the Police. They questioned the functioning of the Superintendent of Police & demanded his immediate transfer.

They argued-

  1. Policemen misused the Police Act & tortured Chuneshwar whereas there was a provision to submit a personal bond.
  2. Police treated Chuneshwar as if they had caught a terrorist. Several sections were imposed against the senior advocate even after he got bail.

Terming the police case false, Bar association has threatened a pen-down strike until the case is withdrawn & the Kullu SP apologises.
