Lawyers in Islamabad staged a protest after their chambers at the Islamabad judicial complex were destroyed by the Capital Development Authority on Monday.

The authority has claimed that these chambers are being built on encroached land.

The lawyers have challenged these claims. The protesters marched towards the Chief Justice Block and broke windows there. They also shouted slogans outside the IHC Chief Justice's office. Athar Minallah is reportedly stuck in his chamber.

Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kyani tried to calm down the protesters. The lawyers said that they will not talk to anyone unless their chambers are rebuilt.

Contingents of police and rangers have arrived at the location.

Earlier, Justice Minallah while hearing a case against the housing society of PTI's Aleem Khan had ordered the CDA to end demolish all encroachments in the capital.
