Delhi police may arrest Baba Ramdev

Baba Ramdev
New Delhi, Jun 18: After defending their action at Ramlila Maidan on Baba Ramdev and his supporters, Delhi police now claimed that they may arrest the yoga guru if allegations against him (Ramdev) will be proved true.

Times of India quoted a Delhi police official as saying, "...we might arrest him if our investigations provide us with proof that he had instigated the public at Ramlila Maidan."

However, the official also said, "At present, he (Ramdev) has not been named as an accused in our FIR," the daily mentioned. Police earlier had claimed that they (police) have acquired few video footages which show some speakers on the dais delivering provocative speeches at Ramlila Maidan on Jun 4. Police alleged that the speakers asked people to attack them (police).

On Jun 17, police justified its stance as an anonymous source was quoted as saying, "Evidence suggests that most people were injured due to stampede, not because of lathicharge. But the timing of the crackdown is odd and the Delhi Police is finding it difficult in justifying that. Choosing 1am to disperse the sleeping crowd was absurd."

The Supreme Court had asked the Delhi police to submit a detailed report on their "brutal" act on Ramdev and the people gathered at Ramlila to hold a fast protest to bring back black money stashed in foreign banks.
