Lawyer Pranshant Bhushan while marching on a protest in Delhi along with Yogendra Yadav on Thursday (30 January) was stopped and asked to disperse by a Delhi police force.

Instead of complying with the police order, Bhushan began arguing with the cops and even demanded they show the order paper and ID proof as now a days miscreants too are wearing their uniform and roaming around.

In the above video Bhushan can be demanding the cop show his badge and was seconded by Yadav. He added that many unauthorised people now a days are wearing a police uniform.

Incidentally it may be recalled that Bhushan has been one of the key supporters of the so-called Kagaz Nahin Dikhayenge campaign and even compared it with the Indian freedom struggle.

Bhushan incidentally continued to argue and even tried to threaten a cop by saying, “don’t you know who I am” and the cop calmly replied that he does not.
