A scuffle broke out between two factions of lawyers in front of the Nepal Supreme Court on Friday amid an ongoing protest against Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher Rana. The scuffle broke out after lawyers in support of the Chief Justice tried to intervene in a sit-in-protest staged by agitating advocates of the Nepal Bar Association and the Apex Court justices. Police took into custody five lawyers who were there in support of CJ Rana. In an attempt to increase pressure on Chief Justice, the agitating lawyers and justices of the Supreme Court have called on to "bar CJ Rana from entering office." Nepal Bar has been in agitation demanding the resignation of the Chief Justice, accusing him of seeking a political share in the cabinet, and encouraging corruption in the judiciary. Advocates and Justices at Supreme Court had started agitation against CJ Rana from the end of September, accusing the head of Nepal's Apex Court of misappropriation. CJ Rana has been blamed for making attempts to take political and personal incentives while delivering verdicts.
