Madras High Court Advocates Association President RC Paul Kanagaraj, submitted that even after 45 days of their agitation against implementation of CISF security cover, advocates who participated are facing disciplinary proceedings.

The Chief Justice said he cannot held responsible for that and he did not want to interfere with the action taken by Bar Council.

The bench then directed the advocates to submit their problems if any to the Security Committee of the court and posted the matter for further hearing to March 8.
