Attempt to attack Team Anna members foiled in Meerut; 4 arrested

Police arrested more than 4 people in Meerut in connection with an attempt to attack Team Anna members. Arvind Kejariwal was expected to hold a public meeting in Meerut this evening.

The arrested were identified as members of Akhand Hindustan Morcha; the same as those who attacked the supporters of Team Anna members outside Delhi's Patiala House court complex during the hearing against Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena who manhandled Prashant Bhushan in his chambers in the Supreme Court.

The arrested claimed that they were angry over Prashant Bhushan's comments on Kashmir. Prashant Bhushan had stated in a public meeting in Varanasi that he was in favour of holding a referendum in Kashmir.

Following his statements Prashant Bhushan drew flak from right-wing nationalist groups and also from Team Anna members. Earlier today Baba Ramdev had said that anyone who says anything against India's claim over Kashmir is a traitor.
