NEW DELHI: Activists of Shri Ram Sene & Bhagat Singh Krant Sena on Thursday resorted to violence against Team Anna supporters outside the Patiala House Court demanding the release of senior lawyer and key member of Jan Lokpal Bill movement Prashant Bhushan's attackers. 

On Wednesday Prashant Bhushan was beaten up in his chamber afternoon allegedly for his comments on Kashmir. Prashant Bhushan was speaking to Times Now news channel when the two attackers barged into his office in the New Lawyers Chamber opposite the Supreme Court. 

One of the attackers slapped, dragged and punched Bhushan repeatedly. The attacker pinned him down on the floor and kicked on his chest. As the staff and others gathered, one of the two attackers managed to escape while the other was caught and handed over to the police. The attackers entered Prashant Bhushan's office claiming that they had an appointment with him. After the attack, Bhushan said it appeared that the men targeted him for his stand on Jammu and Kashmir. 

Delhi Police on Thursday morning arrested the two absconding attackers, Tejinder Singh and Vishnu Gupta. 

The two had managed to flee on Wednesday from the chamber of Prashant Bhushan as people gathered after they attacked the lawyer. The third attacker Inder Verma was overpowered and arrested on Wednesday itself after the assault.

In an earlier interview in Varanasi, Prashant had reportedly said that the Kashmiri people should be given 'azadi' if they don't want to live with India. He had also reportedly recommended that withdrawl of Indian army from Kashmir.
