Police used water cannons against lawyers of Punjab and Haryana High Court here today as the advocates tried to break barricades while protesting the registration of case against some of their fellow members for allegedly manhandling a cop recently.

These protests occurred in the aftermath of the now-infamous bus-rape incident in Delhi.
