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.
- Policemen misused the Police Act & tortured Chuneshwar whereas there was a provision to submit a personal bond.
- 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Terming the police case false, Bar association has threatened a pen-down strike until the case is withdrawn & the Kullu SP apologises.
