The Chief Justice of India expressed deep concern over the shooting in Rohini Court Complex in Delhi.  

Two men pretending to be lawyers opened fire at a rival gangster inside a courtroom in the national capital on Friday afternoon killing him, an incident that also led to a dramatic shootout in which police shot dead the attackers within minutes.

CJI N V Ramana spoke to the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court and advised him to talk to both police and the Bar to ensure that the court remains functional.

Friday's violence could push the matter of Safety and Security of Court Complexes and judicial personnel which is already under SC's consideration. The matter may get prioritised next week.
