Such orders pretty much makes any one question the impartiality of the judiciary. They have already assumed that the lawyers make no mistakes and the police is at fault here. In such a situation how can any police man be even confident that they would get justice? I was reading some posts on social media. One remedy suggested was to stop the practise of advocates becoming judges. The judicial service have to be a completely different service, so much so that in the worse case an advocate and police man will have equal approach to the judges (for good or bad). Today this is a one-sided match.
Police trying to indiminate lawyers is a suicide mission, guaranteed career ending and going to jail without compensation and the family going to ruin.
I remember a dialogue by the Com.Pol (Paresh Rawal) in the old movie Sathya. He says - "Criminals can break the law, because they any way care two hoots about it. The police can do nothing because the laws stop us from taking action". And to be frank I am quite frusturated to see that the great Home Minister Amit Shah has done nothing about this; even when it happened in New Delhi. Shows the empathy such characters have for the L&O officials (whom they actually command and is supposed to effectively use). The BJP Govt. has done diddly squat; perhaps they too are $hit scared of the lawyers & judiciary.

Atleast the latest orders from Delhi HC confirms your thoughts. Judiciary is above law, and lawyers are also above the law. Politicians can be changed every five years. IAS, IPS officers also have checks and balances (including transfers, side-lining and finally even termination). The only one entity today which is completely "independent" is the judicial apparatus. And I don't know how far such a system will benefit India.
