The court asked the Delhi Police, "Explain whether the use of force was justified? What were the circumstance which led to the action and why the police could not wait till the morning to ask the people to leave the venue?"
Baba Ramdev's counsel Ram Jethmalani attacked the Home Minister by saying Mr Chidambaram tried to crush the rights of the ordinary people to protest peacefully. He told the court, "Are we living under dictatorship or a Nazi rule that Baba Ramdev shall not be allowed to carry out his protest and will not be allowed to stay in Delhi?"
The court has asked Delhi Police to file its reply by Friday.
