New Delhi, Oct 12 (IANS) India Against Corruption (IAC) member Arvind Kejriwal and his supporters were detained Friday while protesting against cabinet minister Salman Khurshid and his wife.

Police swooped on them when they were protesting near Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's Race Course Road residence.

The IAC is demanding the minister's resignation after accusing an NGO run by his wife Louise of financial bungling. Khurshid has denied the charge.

According to an IAC spokesperson, the prime minister refused to meet Kejriwal, who was then taken away along with his supporters in buses by police.
