New Delhi: Delhi Police on Wednesday advised Team Anna to immediately hospitalise Arvind Kejriwal and two other fasting activists and warned that the organisers will be "squarely responsible" if anything untoward happens to them.

In a letter to Team Anna member Neeraj Kumar, Additional Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) KC Dwivedi said doctors have advised that Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai need immediate medical intervention and be shifted to a hospital.

Fast enters eighth day

The fast of the three activists entered eighth day on Wednesday and their health has worsened with doctors advising their hospitalisation.

Kejriwal, Rai serious, Team Anna in huddle
Team Anna members health deteriorates
No talks with PM, says miffed Hazare

However, Anna Hazare and Kejriwal saw a conspiracy to take the activists to hospital to end the stir for a strong Lokpal and warned that they would not negotiate with the government if the activists are forcibly removed.

Kejriwal also said that it is the responsibility of the supporters to ensure that he should be out of hospital in case of forcible eviction.

The letter to Team Anna came following the tough stand taken by activists.

Dwivedi said their continued fasting, resistance to accepting medical intervention and announcing from the dais at Jantar Mantar here that there would be dire consequences following their forcible removal is not as per the terms and conditions that were mutually agreed upon and may lead to adverse law and order situation.

"You are advised to follow the doctors' recommendation and take steps for immediate hospitalisation of Arvind Kejriwal, Gopal Rai and Manish Sisodia to prevent harm to their lives and well-being failing which you would be squarely responsible for any untoward incident," the letter said.

Dwivedi pointed out that Team Anna has given an undertaking on July seven that they will abide by all lawful directions by any police officer at any stage of the agitation.
