delhi Updated: Aug 15, 2011 18:58 IST

Delhi Police on Monday deployed a large contingent, including women personnel, around Jai Prakash Narain Park where Anna Hazare and his supporters propose to court arrest on Tuesday.

Sources said that prohibitory orders are likely to be clamped soon around the park near Ferozshah Kotla stadium to ensure that no untoward incident happens after police denied permission to Hazare to hold a fast on lokpal bill issue there.

They said that Delhi Police will also be deploying a large number of women personnel around the park.

Informal talks were also being held with the Hazare team to convince them not to go ahead with the proposed fast, the sources said.
