Anna Hazar arrested by Delhi Police
16-Aug-2011 / ( National - Previous | Next | Last )


Anna Hazare has been arrested by Delhi Police from his residence at Mayur Vihar today morning as he was preparing to leave for today's fast.

Anna Hazare and two of his team members courted arrest outside the flat in which they were staying after the police prevented them from coming out. The event occurred early in the morning (around 8am IST).

The veteran crusader against corruption in India was scheduled to start his indefinite hunger strike today morning at J. P. Park in New Delhi.

Anna and his team have been demanding that the government enact a strong Lokpal Bill. He had earlier gone on fast in April this year on the same issue.

He had broken his fast after the government had assured him that a Lokpal bill would be enacted soon. A joint committee of government representatives - Ministers and members of Anna's team was consitituted to formulate the draft of the bill.

The relations between the Ministers and Anna's team had soured by June. The government went ahead and tabled its version of the Lokpal Bill in the Parliament during the monsoon session.

Anna and his team had rejected the government's version of the bill saying that it was too dilute and had no teeth. They have been since protesting for a strong Lokpal Bill.
