    India's anti-corruption campaigner Kisan Baburao, popularly known as Anna Hazare, has agreed to end his hunger strike on Sunday.

    Hazare, has been fasting in a fast-unto-death protest against corruption in the country.

    He accepted to end his 12-day fast, which has galvanised people across the nation, after India's parliament unanimously backed a new law addressing his demands.
