Anna Hazare, Arvind Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi and Shanti Bhushan have been arrested by Delhi Police, hours before Anna could launch his fast against corruption.


Hazare, along with his supporters were arrested by the Delhi Police, preventing him from going ahead with his proposed protest.


Hazare and his associates were arrested under CrPC sections 107 and 151. Hazare (73) was taken into custody from a residential area in Mayur Vihar before he was to proceed to the venue of his fast at J.P. Park, where prohibitory orders are in place.


The Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) sections 107 and 151: What does it imply?
Section 107: When an Executive Magistrate receives information that any person is likely to commit a breach of the peace or disturb the public tranquility or to do any wrongful act that may probably occasion a breach of' the peace or disturb the public tranquility and is of opinion that there is sufficient ground for proceeding, he may in the manner hereinafter provided, require such person to show cause why he should not be ordered to execute a bond [with or without sureties] for keeping the peace for such period, not exceeding one year, as the Magistrate thinks fit.


Section 151: Arrest to prevent the commission of cognizable offences. A police officer knowing of a design to commit any cognizable offence may arrest, without orders from a Magistrate and without a warrant, the person so designing, if it appears to such officer that the commission of the offence cannot be otherwise prevented.


Is the police order dictated by centre?

First Baba Ramdev, now Anna Hazare and supporters… Is the government trying to impose dictatorship in India?
