Advocate Nokesh Bhaskar (34) allegedly attacked his senior Sadanand Narnavre (62) with an axe on the footpath outside the court around 4.45 pm.

"The victim sustained serious injuries and fell to the ground. Policemen on the court premises caught hold of the accused and took the victim to the government hospital," said Deputy Commissioner of Police Chinmay Pandit.

"The accused then said he had consumed poison, so immediately he too was rushed to the hospital where he (Bhaskar) died while undergoing treatment," the officer said.

"The accused did not reveal the reason for attacking the victim when he was caught," the DCP added.

Narnavre, who taught at the post-graduate department of law at Nagpur University, was practising at the district court after retirement.

Further probe is underway.
