A day after one person died in a bloody fight at yoga guru Ramdev’s Patanjali Food and Herbal Park, the district administration has deployed police inside the campus to prevent another violent clash at Haridwar’s Padartha village.
Police are investigating the matter after lodging an FIR under sections 302, 307, 147, 148, 149, 504 of the IPC.
Three persons, including Ramdev’s brother Ram Bharat, have been named as accused in the case.
“We will undertake search operations again to collect evidence from the food park,” Haridwar SSP Sweety Agrawal told The Indian Express.
“Two others named in the case are Yogesh and Anand Goswami,” she said.
The autopsy report revealed that Daljeet, a local transporter involved in the clash, died due to injuries after being beaten up.
On Wednesday, violence had erupted near the Patanjali Food and Herbal Park following a demonstration held by the local truckers’ union.
Local transporters were protesting an alleged move by the food park management to deny them assignments to transport products from the park to different parts of the country.
“The problem began after March 13, that’s when the food park management suddenly stopped giving supply and transport assignments to local truckers,” said Dharmendra Chauhan, president of local transporters’ union called as Pathari Truck Owners’ Welfare Association.
