New Delhi: The Centre today told the Supreme Court that the decision to evict Baba Ramdev from the Ramlila Grounds in a midnight crackdown was taken by the Delhi Police, and not by Home Minister P Chidambaram.
Centre told the court the apprehension of breach of peace by the police can not be questioned by the Supreme Court.
The Amicus Curiae, however, countered Centre and accused Mr Chidambaram was involved in the police attack. He told court the political decision to evict Ramdev couldn't have been taken by police. Arguments in the case will resume on January 20.
Late at night, during a protest against black money, as thousands lay sleeping, the Delhi Police lashed out with batons to dispel the crowd, and to track down Baba Ramdev. He disappeared, and was found hours later, disguised as a woman, near the railway station.
