Bihar minister files case against Ramdev

April 28, 2014 15:33 IST

Bihar Minister and Janata Dal-United leader Shayam Rajak on Monday filed a complaint case against yoga teacher Ramdev for his uncharitable remarks on Congress Vice-president Rahul Gandhi pertaining to Dalits.

Rajak filed the case in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Ramakant Yadav.

The matter will come up for hearing on Tuesday.

Rajak submitted in his petition that Ramdev's statement "Rahul Gandhi visits Dalits' houses for honeymoon" had insulted the downtrodden.

He sought action against Ramdev under IPC 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), Representation of Peoples Act, 1951 and relevant sections of SC & ST Act.
