Anna supporters protest outside Chidambaram's house, detained

Chennai: More than 70 supporters of Team Anna were today detained when they staged a demonstration outside the residence of Union Home Minister P Chidambaram here.

The protesters raised slogans against Chidambaram and demanded an inquiry by a Special Investigation Team into the allegations of corruption against 15 Central ministers including him.


Police said the demonstrators were detained.

Following the protest, security has been tightened in the area.

The protest comes a day after Team Anna supporters staged a protest outside the Prime Minister's residence in Delhi.

Hazare said the protest by his supporters outside the Prime Minister‘s official residence was a reaction by the people who were angry at the government.

However, he advised all his supporters to “think before doing any such things”.

“People are fed up and angry as they have been suffering for so long. We should think before taking any such step as it involves the country’s prime minister,” Hazare told reporters here before beginning his indefinite fast at Jantar Mantar.
