Patna, Mar 30 (UNI) A local court here today admitted a complaint case filed against Yoga Guru Swami Ramdev and handed over the case to Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate for inquiry.

Special Chief Judicial Magistrate Sushma Sinha passed this order after hearing Counsel Bhupendra Kumar, appearing for the complainant Deo Kumar Singh, the Mukhiya of Bali Panchayat under Gaurichak police station area of Patna district.

The court, however, refused to direct police to register a case and inquire into the matter. It fixed April 7 as the next date for hearing the case.

Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate of Patna Sanjay Kumar Singh would now inquire into the matter and check whether there was sufficient evidence available for proceeding in the case against Swami Ramdev and about 50 'Vaidyas' of his Divya Yoga Mandir Trust of Haridwar.

The complaint case was filed by the said Mukhiya in the court under various sections of IPC and the Drugs and Magic Remedies (Objectionable Advertisement) Act on March 18.

Swami Ramdev and 'Vaidyas' have been charged of glorifying magic remedies by distributing pamphlets and raising slogans on the occasion of arrival of the Swami in Patna, which was violation of the said act, the complaint said.
