HYDERABAD: The lawyers boycotted the court proceedings here on Thursday to condemn the killing of a session judge in Quetta the other day.

Addressing a general body meeting at District Bar Association, the bar's President Nisar Durrani demanded immediate arrest of the judge's killers.

He also called for restoring peace in the province of Balochistan where many innocent lives had been taken by terrorists.

The lawyers later held a token protest outside the court and chanted slogans demanding security measures for the judges and the lawyers.
