Kolkata, Jun 17(UNI) An abrupt demonstration by ISI employees greeted Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee when he visited the institute here today.

Shouting slogans, a section of employees, under the banner of ISI Workers' Organisation, staged the demonstration demanding, among other things, compassionate appointment for the kin of employees.
