New Delhi: Activist Anna Hazare is being taken to Medanta hospital after he broke his fast here at the Ramlila Grounds on Sunday, a doctor said.

"Most likely he would be taken to the hospital as he is not well. He has not been eating since the past 12 days, he has to be closely checked and monitored," said Balram Gupta, a member of Naresh Trehan`s team said before Anna ended his fast.

He might remain in the hospital for a couple of days due to his deteriorating health condition, he added.

Hazare, 74, who had been fasting since August 16 demanding a strong Lokpal bill, was supposed to go to Rajghat after breaking his fast at 10.00 am. But now that is unlikely.

Hazare decided to end his fast after the Parliament agreed to the three key issues demanded by him on Saturday.
