Lawyer, family climb water tank over cases against him
A lawyer and his kin climbed on top of a water tank in Uttar Pradesh and climbed down after 60 hours, on Monday evening. While the lawyer was atop the tank, he threatened to immolate himself and his family members as he demanded an inquiry to check the credibility of charges levelled against him.
On Saturday, lawyer Vijay Pratap, his wife, son, daughter and two relatives climbed on a water tank in Beli area and refused to come down. The lawyer alleged that he had been "chased away" from his village by the district magistrate of Hardoi.
