Prohibitory orders around Ramlila Ground

New Delhi: The government on Sunday banned any gathering around Ramlila Ground, the sprawling venue for Baba Ramdev`s anti-corruption protest that was broken up by police in a midnight crackdown.
Delhi Police said Section 144 -- which prohibits assembly of five or more people and holding of public meetings -- has been imposed around the area.
Ramdev had booked the ground for nearly a month for his hunger strike against corruption and black money stashed by Indians in foreign banks. But in less than 24 hours after he launched the high profile protest, police shortly after Saturday midnight swooped down on the area and took the yoga guru out of the capital.
