A press conference addressed by Aam Aadmi Party leader Prashant Bhushan was today disrupted by a man here, protesting his comment on presence of army in Jammu and Kashmir.

The man identified as Vishnu Gupta shouted slogans against the noted lawyer and called him a "traitor" for his recent comments relating to army's presence in Kashmir.

Gupta claimed that he belongs to a right-wing outfit.

Bhushan last week had said that deployment of military in Jammu and Kashmir should be undertaken with the consent of people of the state.

His comment was slammed by parties across the political divide. Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal had also disapproved of Bhushan's comments.

The lawyer had later said his comments were "twisted" by the media.
