New Delhi, Aug 22: Delhi police on Monday, Aug 22 arrested several protesters in front of the telecom minister, Kapil Sibal's residence as they (agitators) staged protest following Anna Hazare's clarion call to "Gherao MPs" and asked them about their (MPs) opinion on Jan Lokpal Bill.

Earlier on Sunday, almost 80 protesters were arrested after they showed protest in front of the Prime Minister's house at 7RCR in New Delhi while they (Anna's supporters) protested peacefully holding "get well soon" banners and flowers.
