With the advocates’ stir entering the third day today, many people who visited the Law Courts Complex in city found themselves left in the lurch.

The advocates have been demanding the repatriation of one Nagendra Prasad, Shirestedar, alleging that the latter was misbehaving with the advocates.

To end the stalemate, a conciliatory meeting was held this morning at the Mediation Centre in the Court premises attended by a panel of judges led by First Additional Judge Muthuraj and a delegation of advocates led by Mysore Bar Association President Basavaraj.

Despite a prolonged discussion lasting almost two hours, no consensus could be arrived at with the advocates reportedly sticking to their demand of shunting the Shirestedar.

The inconclusive meeting was reportedly curtailed with the judges seeking time till 5 pm today to arrive at a decision.

Principal District and Sessions Judge Mohan Sripad Sankolli and office-bearers of the Bar Association too attended the meeting.

However, sources in the court said that the allegations of advocates against Nagendra was biased, false and totally baseless as the latter was a disciplined officer who would not budge for influential pressure tactics.
