While marching towards Parliament as part of his intensified protest against corruption and bringing back black money stashed away in foreign shores, Baba Ramdev on Monday was taken into preventive custody by the Delhi Police. The yoga guru and his supporters are being taken to Bawana on the outskirts of Delhi for detention.
Ramdev courted arrest along with thousands of his supporters near the Ranjit Singh flyover, just a few metres away from the Ramlila Maidan in central Delhi, the venue of his fast protest since Thursday.
As there was no response from the Union government for his demands, Ramdev announced on Monday morning that he and his supporters would march towards Parliament and hold an agitation outside the complex. He began his march at 1:15pm. He was soon joined by thousands of his supporters.
Ten minutes into the march, the protesters were stopped by Delhi Police near the flyover, saying that they do not have permission to march.
