The Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to hear a petition by a woman lawyer seeking a CBI probe in the daylight murder UP's first woman Bar Council President in Agra.

A vacation bench comprising Justices Sanjiv Khanna and B.R. Gavai observed that the petition should be filed before the High Court.

Darvesh Singh Yadav was shot dead on the premises of Agra court recently. The petition has been filed by Indu Kaul, demanding security and safety of women lawyers in court premises.

Yadav was shot thrice by another lawyer Manish Sharma, who had known to be her long-time acquaintance.

Kaul also sought direction to the Centre, the Uttar Pradesh government and the Bar Council of India to adequately compensate the family members of the deceased, and also formalize a social security scheme for women lawyers.

"Women advocates are vulnerable in all courts across the country. A woman advocate has to fight her illness, old age, family conditions throughout her life, as there is no social security provided by bar councils or associations," said the petition.
