Should the Supreme court direct the Home minister and the DELHI POLICE to personally compensate for crackdown on yoga guru Ramdev's supporters?
According to media reports, the court
criticized Baba Ramdev for negligence and pulled up the police saying it could have shown more patience. The court also said that crackdown victim Rajbala should be paid a compensation of Rs 5 lakh.
The court also said that public was the real sufferer in the incident.
The apex court had taken suo motu cognizance of media reports purportedly showing brutality of police action against the sleeping followers of Ramdev, including women and children.
A woman later died due to the injury suffered in the police crackdown. A bench of justices B S Chauhan and Swatanter Kumar had reserved the verdict on January 20.
