Anna Hazare New Delhi, March 24 (IANS) More than 1,000 police personnel will be deputed here at Jantar Mantar where Anna Hazare will sit on a day-long protest Sunday, a senior police officer said Saturday.

Delhi Police have given conditional permission to Team Anna for the protest on the issue of alleged killings of several honest men and officers by organised mafia or in terror attacks.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Seju Kuruvilla said a legal undertaking has been taken from team Anna.

“The organisers have confirmed the presence of the father of IPS officer Narendra Kumar who was killed in Morena district of Madhya Pradesh while intercepting a tractor-trolley carrying illegally-mined stones,” he said.

He said the family of Indian Oil Corporation officer Manjunath Shanmugam, who was shot dead in Lakhimpur Kheri while trying to stop sale of adulterated oil, is also likely to be present at Jantar Mantar Sunday.

Kuruvilla further added that team Anna informed him about the presence of around 40 such families at Jantar Mantar whose kin were either killed by mafia or during terror attacks.

“We have told them that the crowd should not be more than 1,000 people. Around 10 metal detectors will be placed at three entry points with 1,000 police personnel to avoid any untoward incident,” he added.
