Acts such as damage to the property of a lawyer, using a derogatory word against an advocate have been categorized as an offense. All these offenses will be non-bailable offenses. There is a provision for imprisonment of 6 months to 2 years as well as a fine of ten lakh rupees for such offense. For these offenses, the police will have to complete the investigation within 30 days, which will be heard by the District and Sessions Judge / Additional District and Sessions Judge, but if a lawyer is accused then this law will not apply to him.
