Baba Ramdev & P Chidambaram
New Delhi, Jul 11: After a brief pause, the controversy over the eviction of Baba Ramdev once again raised its head when the Supreme Court held the hearing on the petition by the yoga guru's followers.

In the apex court, Ramdev on Monday, Jul 11 hurled his attack on the union home minister, P Chidambaram over the police "atrocities" on Baba and his followers.

Ramdev accused Chidambaram of sending Delhi police at the midnight to forcefully remove him (Ramdev) from the national capital.

The yoga guru held a hunger strike in Delhi demanding black money stashed abroad to be brought back. He (Ramdev) was booted out from the capital after police attacked the Baba and his followers at Ramlila Maidan on Jun 4. Baba's fast ended with the late night lathi-charge, tear-gassing, and the arrest of the yoga icon in disguise of a woman.

The Supreme Court on Monday inquired the Delhi police about their inaction over Baba's followers' complaints against police officials.

The apex court also asked the police to submit the video footage of Ramdev's "yoga camp" at Ramliala maidan. The court will review 31 hard disks' worth of footage to determine the sequence of events on that night.

Famous criminal lawyer Ram Jethmalani argued in the court on behalf of the Baba challenging the government version of the action that took place in the Delhi ground on Jun 4.
