Court seeks ATR from cops on Ramdev's anti-MP remarks

May 22, 2012 15:59 IST

A Delhi court on Tuesday asked the city police to apprise it of the action taken by it on a complaint against Yoga Guru Ramdev for his controversial remarks against parliamentarians.

Metropolitan Magistrate Purshotam Pathak sought the action-taken-report (ATR) of police by June 22 on a complaint by a law student, Vibhor Anand.

The complainant moved the court seeking direction to the police to register an FIR against Ramdev on charges of sedition.

He said Ramdev had made general allegations against parliamentarians who "are running the system of the country" and it amounts to sedition.

The Yoga guru had attacked MPs calling them "dacoits and murderers".

Addressing media, while launching his month-long yatra in Chhattisgarh's Durg, Ramdev had said, "They are those people who don't care, don't love the farmers, the labourers or the people of this country."

He had said there are good people among parliamentarians and he respected them. "But there are dacoits, murderers, illiterates among them. We have to save Parliament. We have to remove corrupt people," Ramdev had said.
