Baba Ramdev
New Delhi, Dec 25: Yoga-guru Baba Ramdev landed in a legal trouble when Delhi police booked him for allegedly inciting violence during protest in Delhi over the recent infamous gang-rape.

Ramdev along with former chief of India Army, General VK Singh were booked for allegedly provoking the crowd at Jantar Mantar on Sunday, Dec 23.

Ramdev and General Singh had led a group of protesters who had a clash with Delhi police when they were barred from marching towards India Gate.

During his brief speech at Jantar Mantar, Ramdev said, "Government should set up fast track courts and punish all the rapists. We want death penalty for all the accused."

Soon after his speech, Delhi police gheraoed the yoga guru and his followers and prevented them from moving towards the epicentre of the protest.

However, the supporters and followers of the yoga-guru had broken barricades and marched towards India Gate. Citing the huge crowd moving towards Raisina Hill, police used tear gas, water canons and lathicharged the protesters.

Delhi police also filed two cases of riots on the same day. Three people had received injury during the clash between protesters and police.

Thousands of protesters showed their rage for three-four consecutive days demanding justice for the 23-year-old victim of the gang-rape. Six men allegedly had raped her and thrown her out of a moving bus.

The victim, a paramedical student, has been battling for her life at the ICU in Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi. Doctors of the hospital on Monday, Dec 24 informed that her health condition deteriorated.
