New Delhi: The Bar Council of Delhi on Monday said that the sleaze CD controversy surrounding lawyer and Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi has lowered the dignity of the legal profession. Singhvi maintains that the CD's contents were fabricated and morphed.
Rajiv Khosla, member of the Bar Council of Delhi and former president of the Delhi Bar Association, said: "Such incidents cause a great damage to the whole legal institution and cannot be taken as an isolated incident concerning only an individual."
The bar council is going to hold a meeting on this issue May 1.
"The lawyers of Delhi, therefore, are interested to get the truth unfolded so that it should be known to everyone as to why the driver of an advocate stoop so low to make a dirty CD," said Khosla.
