Ramdev Arrested

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev was flown out of Delhi to Dehra Dun by a special plane after the police swooped down on his hunger strike at the Ramlila Maidan in a midnight operation.
Baba Ramdev, who was initially taken to an undisclosed destination from the protest site, was flown to Dehra Dun from Palam Airport this morning, officials said.
On his arrival at the Jolly Grant Airport near Dehra Dun, Baba Ramdev, who was alone, was received by Uttarakhand government officials, they said.
“He was alone when he landed. He was received by officials at the airport. He will now proceed to Haridwar where he has an ashram,” Dehra Dun Senior Superintendent of Police G. S. Martolia said.
While leaving the airport for his ashram, he refused to speak to media persons, saying that he will hold a press conference later.
