Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena attacks Anna supporters

New Delhi: Five supporters of anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare were on Thursday attacked by some workers of the Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena.

They were attacked outside the Patiala House court in the national capital.

This comes a day after key Team Anna member Prashant Bhushan was attacked inside his chamber in the Supreme Court.

The Anna supporters were registering their protest against Wednesday’s assault on Bhushan when they were attacked.

"We were demonstrating to register our protest against yesterday's attack on Bhushan. We have not intention to fight but these people came and roughed up. They kicked and slapped us," said one the supporters.

Bhushan was assaulted by three people on Wednesday afternoon, following which the group had claimed the responsibility for the attack.

They said that they were unhappy with Bhushan over his comments on Kashmir, wherein the Team Anna member had advocated a plebiscite in the state.
