A prominent anti-corruption crusader in India is on a daylong hunger strike to protest the killings of a slew of activists across the country.

Hundreds of supporters gathered in the Indian capital to support Anna Hazare on Sunday. Hazare said his fast was to draw attention to the lack of government protection to corruption whistle blowers. Over the last few years several people, some of them government officials, have been killed while trying to expose the country's endemic corruption.

Hazare has fasted four times already to demand the creation of a powerful anti-corruption watchdog organization. That legislation is currently stalled in Parliament.
