New Delhi, Aug 15: Delhi government tonight decided to allow use of Chhatrasal Stadium in Model Town in North Delhi for keeping the supporters of Anna Hazare in the event of their arrest during his protest here on Tuesday  16 August.

"We have decided that people of Anna Hazare team and his followers will be kept in the Chhatrasal stadium in case they are arrested," Delhi Home Secretary Arvind Ray told PTI.

The stadium belongs to Delhi Government.

Delhi Chief Secretary P K Tripathi held a meeting with top officials this evening to deal with the situation that may arise following team Anna''s arrest if they go ahead with the protest despite Delhi police refusal of permission to the Gandhian to hold his fast at Jai Prakash Narayan Park.

Ray said Delhi government received a communication from Delhi police to deploy magistrates along with police to tackle any untoward incident.

He said the Delhi Law Secretary has already taken up the issue with judges of Delhi high Court in this regard.

"The magistrates will be deployed by the High Court and that is why the Law Secretary has taken up the issue with the High Court", Ray added.

Delhi Police sought the services of two magistrates ahead of the protest by Team Anna which stuck to its stand of going ahead with their fast against corruption despite denial of permission for the agitation.
