New Delhi: Congress-backed National Students Union of India (NSUI) had meticulously planned to attack the 78-year-old anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare and his associates, as per sources.

Anna Hazare and his team had begun their hunger strike at Jantar Mantar on Wednesday.

One of the team Anna members has recorded their planning and told the organizers to take safety measures. The group of people, who were shouting slogans against Anna Hazare prompting the volunteers to remove them from the venue, claimed themselves as Congress supported wing NSUI workers, and created a ruckus at the venue.

In the video taken by one of the team supporters, a man is seen giving instructions to his associates to attack Anna Hazare, Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia.

This led to a minor scuffle between the NSUI activists and Team Anna volunteers forcing them to remove them latter on from the venue.

Anna Hazare’s three close aides — Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai — sat on a hunger strike at Jantar Mantar while the 74-year-old activist is on a dharna.
