Bengaluru, Feb 3 (PTI) The High Court of Karnataka on Friday expressed its concern over a threat to senior advocate MS Shyam Sundar and said such things were unheard of in the State.

The senior counsel filed an affidavit before Justice V Srishananda that some rowdy elements were seen outside his house. The personal affidavit stated also that a woman colleague of his was stalked.

Justice V Srishananda said, “This court has got a tradition and culture and you are trying to spoil that. A responsible member of the Bar is making allegations against you. This was unheard of in Karnataka.” MS Shyam Sundar, representing Alliance University, in a petition sought cancellation of bail granted to the former chancellor of the university Madhukar G Angur. Angur was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in a money-laundering case and obtained bail.
