Raids on premises of advocates: Delhi High Court dismisses plea for guidelines

The Court opined that it cannot issue general directions on the issue, and added that any person aggrieved that their rights or privileges have been infringed can approach the appropriate court for relief.

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed a writ petition that called for guidelines to be issued so that "privileged communication" between advocates and clients remain protected if raids, searches, or seizures are conducted on the lawyers' premises. (Nikhil Borwankar v. State)
