New Delhi: A scuffle broke out between Team Anna supporters and mediapersons on Monday night at Jantar Mantar, where anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare is on an indefinite fast.

The incident took place at around 10 pm, when Hazare supporters entered into an argument with the mediapersons. A team Anna member's allegation that the media was not projecting the protest in right light led to the scuffle.

Key Team Anna member Kumar Vishwas condemned the incident and said the scuffle should not have taken place. Meanwhile, the Broadcast Editors' Association (BEA) has condemned the incident and demanded an apology from Team Anna.
