New Delhi, Aug 21 (UNI) The Congress today said it had initiated disciplinary action against senior Party leader and former Rajya Sabha member R K Anand who was convicted by the Delhi High Court for obstruction of justice in the BMW hit-and-run case.

Mr Anand, a senior criminal lawyer, and another senior advocate I U Khan were today found guilty of criminal contempt of court and obstruction of justice by the Delhi High Court in the BMW hit-and-run case following a sting operation by a private television channel.

Both of them were barred from appearing in the High Court and other subordinate courts for four months and fined Rs 2,000 each.
