A scuffle ensued between Congress lawyers and staff at the Supreme Court (SC) Registrar's office. The lawyers, who had entered the office after they were called in by the Registrar, were stopped by the security staff. Thereby a scuffle ensued. Though this is not uncommon, the issue assumed significance because of the urgency which the Congress lawyers wanted to meet the registrar to file a petition against the appointing of protem Speaker, Bopaiah. The whole episode was being watched by the nation.
