Police, Team Anna worked out fast details: Home Secretary

"Delhi Police and Anna Hazare's team have worked out among themselves (details) for a 15 days fast at the Ramlila ground," Singh said.

In a dramatic turn of events, Delhi Police allowed Team Anna to hold their fast at Ramilia ground in central Delhi for 15 days. The conditions imposed earlier were also withdrawn.
"We have been assured by the Delhi Police that if we need the ground for more days, we can stay there," said Hazare's aide, Arvind Kejriwal.

"The conditions imposed on us earlier have also been withdrawn," he added.Hazare, 74, had planned to begin his fast for a stronger anti-corruption Lokpal Bill from the J.P. Park in the ITO area Tuesday. However, Delhi Police imposed certain conditions before allowing the protest. Hazare refused to sign the undertaking, following which the police detained him and his other team members Tuesday.

He was arrested and subsequently released but refused to leave the jail until allowed to carry on the protest without any conditions.
