Ramdev grilled by CBI in missing ‘guru’ case

The agency said Ramdev was grilled at its headquarters in connection with the case last week.

The CBI has recorded the statement of Baba Ramdev in connection with its probe in the alleged kidnapping of his ‘guru’ Swami Shankar Dev who mysteriously went missing six years ago while taking a morning walk in Haridwar. The agency said Ramdev was grilled at its headquarters in connection with the case last week. Sources said he might be questioned again. According to media reports,Ramdev has claimed the government is trying to frame him in the case through the CBI. Refuting the allegations of Ramdev,CBI Director Ranjit Sinha said the yoga guru’s charges are baseless. “We are not concerned with any political party. We are probing the case which has been registered against him in a fair and objective manner,” Sinha said. Sources said the agency has already recorded statement of his close aide Balkrishna in connection with the case.
