After a gap of more than two months, Anna Hazare will return to the capital to stage a hunger strike this Sunday demanding justice for slain IPS officer Narendra Kumar and a strong law to protect whistleblowers.

This will be the first hunger strike undertaken by 74-year-old Hazare after he called off his three-day fast for a strong lokpal bill in Mumbai last December owing to failing health.

A Team Anna member said Hazare will sit on a one-day fast in Jantar Mantar in solidarity with those demanding justice for the 2009 -batch IPS officer who was killed by mining mafia in Madhya Pradesh.

Team Anna has also invited family members of slain whistleblowers to the function.
