Discussions are underway, senior officials are addressing all the concerns," the commissioner said.

Hundreds of police personnel had gathered outside the police headquarters to protest the assault on cops following a clash with lawyers at Tis Hazari Court Complex on Saturday. At least 20 police personnel and several lawyers were injured in the clash and many vehicles were set on fire during following the fight between police and lawyers. Days after the incident, a police constable was beaten up by lawyers outside the Saket Court. This triggered a massive protest by policemen who demanded action against those involved in the attack.
