Anonymous [advocate, Lahore High Court, Pakistan]: "Today, I went to Lahore High Court at around 12 noon. It was all deserted. Hardly any lawyers seen there. Many plain clothed policemen and other military agents were roaming around. I could not get pictures under apprehension of loosing my Motorola, but I managed to take one that I am sending. This is the decades old door of Kiyani Hall of High Court Bar Association which was broken by riot police on November 5th (Monday) when lawyers locked themselves inside fearful of baton charge."
