Anna Hazare New Delhi, Nov 5 (IANS) A committee of judges will be set up to examine charges being levelled against members of Anna Hazare’s core committee, key Hazare aide Arvind Kejriwal said Saturday.

Replying to questions from India TV, Kejriwal said senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan was in talks with some of the judges to set up the committee.

“Annaji had himself wanted that a committee of judges be set up to look into such charges. We knew from the beginning that charges would be levelled against some of us. Prashant Bhushan is presently looking into it so that the committee can be set up,” said Kejriwal.

On Kiran Bedi’s air travel transactions, Kejriwal said she was not a “personal beneficiary”, though it was a “technical irregularity” and she could have taken the money through donations for her NGO which works for children of Tihar jail prisoners.
