Mumbai, Oct 19: Denying reports that Maharashtra government had ordered a review of Anna Hazare's security after attacks on Team Anna members Prashant Bhushan and Arvind Kejriwal, the state Home Department on Wednesday said cover provided to the anti-graft activist was 'more than adequate'.


"We have already provided 'Z' category security to Hazare. There have been no orders for reviewing the security," a senior official said.

"Such reports (that Hazare's security is being reviewed) are a figment of someone's fertile imagination," he said, following the reports from a section of media that Maharashtra DGP ordered a review of Hazare's security after IB alerts.

Hazare is currently on 'maun vrat' (vow of silence) and is not undertaking any kind of travel.

Team Anna member Bhushan, a prominent lawyer, was recently assaulted in his chamber over his controversial remarks on Kashmir, while Kejriwal was attacked with a sandal on Tuesday while going to address a rally in Lucknow.
