Around hundred Team Anna supporters, including eight women, took security personnel by surprise Saturday evening after they suddenly turned up outside the prime minister's house at 7, Race Course Road to protest.

Holding placards and banners against the government and the prime minister and shouting slogans, the crowd protested against the coal block allocation during the period Manmohan Singh held the coal portfolio. They also demanded a strong Jan Lokpal bill.
