Alleging harassment of volunteers of India Against Corruption, Arvind Kejriwal and others will on Monday stage a protest outside Parliament Street police station in New Delhi and offer arrest.
Kejriwal and other leaders of the IAC will arrive at the police station in morning and demand that the volunteers detained during August 26 protest should not be harassed in the name of collecting evidence.
Five cases of rioting have been registered against Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan, Manish Sisodia, Kumar Vishas, Gopal Rai and several unknown people for their protest against the coal block allocation.
Bibhav Kumar, an IAC member, said "they will not take bail but will go to jail".
He alleged that police, who were summoning the volunteers on the pretext of collecting evidence in the cases, were harassing them.
"Kejriwal and other leaders will tell police that they can arrest them but not harass people," Kumar said.
