Rajasthan Government on Friday night transferred Jaipur Police Commissioner B.L Soni as director of Police Academy, Jaipur.  Assistant Police Commissioner Biju George Joseph will now hold Soni’s post till further orders, spokesperson said.
The protesting lawyers and the policemen have been at loggerheads since March 8 when the Rajasthan high court's Jaipur bench ordered judicial probe into the violent clashes that took place between the two in Jaipur on March 6 and 7. The lawyers called off their strike after a meeting between govt. officials, Bar council of India members and representatives of agitating lawyers as an understanding was reached on their 5 point charter of demands. Agititating lawyers had been demanding that Soni and police officers at the spot, when they were baton charged on March 6 while peacefully protesting for better remuneration, should be suspended from their duties. The lawyers have also been demanding better remuneration, cheaper accommodation among other demands.
