The Bar Council of Tamil Nadu & Puducherry has barred the practice of two lawyers vide a resolution dated 18th December, one accused in a POCSO Case, and the other accused of house trespass and giving life threats.

The said case has been registered on the file of the All Women Police Station, Thallakulam, Madurai District and he has been arrested and confined in judicial custody.
