High drama prevailed in a courtroom at the Kurukshetra district courts complex on Wednesday,when an undertrial hurled his slippers at a judicial magistrate.

The accused,Neeraj (26) — a resident of Ladwa in Kurukshetra — was produced by the police in the courtroom in a theft case registered against him. The slippers missed Judicial Magistrate Sunil Kumar and the accused was overpowered by the policemen who had brought him to the courtroom.

After his arrest in 2005,Neeraj was released on bail in 2006. But he never returned and was declared a proclaimed offender. The Kurukshetra police arrested him again on October 16,2012 and he was booked on the charges of violating bail provisions.

This afternoon,he was brought by two policemen to the court of Sunil Kumar,who recorded his presence and asked the policemen to take him away. According to the police,Neeraj suddenly got agitated,took off his slippers and hurled them at Kumar.

“He created a lot of ruckus in the courtroom and kept on shouting that he should be let off as he had not committed any crime,” Kurukshetra district police spokesperson said.

“We have received a complaint from the hon’ble judicial magistrate’s steno,Vijender,and have arrested Neeraj. Another case has been registered against him on charges of preventing a government servant for performing his official duty,intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace,intentional insult or interruption to public servant sitting in judicial proceeding etc,” a police officer said.
