cancel

New Delhi: The Bar Council of India (BCI) issued notices to two defence lawyers for their remarks in a recent documentary on the December 16 gang-rape aired by the BBC on Thursday, NDTV reports.

The council, in its notice, has given the lawyers - ML Sharma and AK Singh - three weeks' time to explain why disciplinary action should not be initiated against them for their remarks.

Mr Sharma has, at one point, in the film said that "there is no place for women in Indian culture." Both AK Singh and he make other outrageous comments too.

Mr Sharma and Mr Singh are the lawyers for the four men on death row for gang-raping and killing a 23-year-old woman in a moving bus in Delhi in December 2012.
