Kejriwal, key Team Anna members arrested
New Delhi, Aug 26 (ANI): Delhi Police on Sunday arrested Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia, Kumar Vishwas and Prashant Bhushan for violating Section 144 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Kejriwal, who was leading the protest march of the IAC activists to the Prime Minister's Office at 7, Race Course Road, has reportedly been taken to Mandir Marg Police Station.
Earlier in the day, police detained Kejriwal for two hours for protesting outside the residences of Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi without permission.
The Delhi Police had denied permission for the protest, as Parliament is in session and prohibitory orders are in place. It also said that no protest could be allowed in the high-security areas.
They had also said that India Against Corruption had failed to control a protest that was held in New Delhi last month.
Meanwhile, six metro stations in central Delhi, which were earlier announced to be closed due to security concerns over the protest, will now remain open throughout the day.
Central Secretariat, Udyog Bhawan, Patel Chowk, Race Course, Jor Bagh and Khan Market stations falling near and around the residences of Singh and Gadkari were to remain closed from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today.
Delhi Metro had taken the decision to close down the stations, five of which fall on the Gurgaon Line, after instructions from Delhi Police. (ANI)
