Updated: August 25, 2011 15:08 IST

Home Minister Chidambaram said police met Anna Hazare and he told them he intended to defy the prohibitory orders. At that time, police came to a conclusion that he will commit a cognizable offence. They invoked article 107 and 151 of CrPC which calls for preventive measures, Chidambaram added. However, he called the incident a 'painful duty.'
