Foreign Exchange Violation: Ramdev claims innocence

Baba Ramdev
Haridwar, Sep 2: Baba Ramdev, who landed himself in legal soup over the charges of violating foreign exchange rules said on Sep 1 that he did nothing wrong.

"I have not done anything wrong or illegal. During my two-decade-long public life, I have replied to all questions raised about me with ample proof," said Baba Ramdev.

A case against the yoga guru was registered after a report from the RBI and the inputs from abroad over the 'suspicious' transactions made by his trust.

The ED officials claimed that they have enough evidences against Ramdev and his trust receiving financial aid from UK, New Zealand and US.

Under the provision of Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA), the ED officials registered a legal case against the Yoga-guru and his trust which allegedly received money worth Rs 7 crore from a UK firm alone.

The investigating agency also asserted that they have evidences against Ramdev's several trusts including Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust and Divya Yoga Mandir Trust.

The records of Ramdev's island castle in Scotland - the Little Cumbrae Island, which is being used as his (Ramdev's) base overseas and also as a wellness centre, have also been investigated.
