New Delhi: Three lawyers have been injured on Thursday after a crude bomb was hurled at lawyer Sanjeev Lodhi outside Lucknow’s Wazirganj civil court, just a kilometre away from Uttar Pradesh Vidhan Sabha. Three live crude bombs were also recovered from the premises.

Lodhi said that he was intentionally targetted by another lawyer Jitu Yadav over some rivalry between two groups of lawyers after a complaint was lodged. The bomb was made using locally-available explosive materials.

There is utter chaos at the Lucknow court premises. Condemning the breach of security, several lawyers gathered after the incident outside the chamber of lawyers; Sanjeev Lodhi was seen shouting slogans. The police are present at the scene and an investigation is underway.
