FAISALABAD - A lawyer tortured a civil judge after the court rejected his client’s bail on Monday.

According to eyewitnesses, lawyer Mohsin appeared before Civil Judge Azhar Ali Jaffari and sought the bail of an accused of robbery. He attacked the judge as the court turned down the bail plea. The court staff caught him and handed over to police but his colleagues stepped in and he was freed.

Reportedly, some lawyers again attacked the judges, triggering a protest by judges, who boycotted the courts and gathered at the court of the senior civil judge.
