The Ranchi District Bar Association during a press meeting announced its unanimous decision to boycott the court of Judge Manish Kumar Singh for passing an order directing a 19-year-old girl Richa Bharti to distribute Qurans.
While speaking to the media, a lawyer representing the Ranch Bar Association announced that the Association has taken an unanimous decision that they would not take part in any proceedings in the Judge’s court, until and unless he gets transferred.
