Official transferred for lodging complaint against Ramdev

Ghaziabad: Ghaziabad Police today transferred an official for “going out of his powers” to lodge a wrong complaint against yoga guru Baba Ramdev.

Anish Kumar, earlier posted at Indirapuram Police Station, has been shifted to the rural belt for not seeking permission of the SHO before filing the complaint, SSP Raghubar Lal said.

Kumar had accepted the complaint of Ashok Sant, president of civil society body Ambedkar Mission, who had alleged that Ramdev had used absurd language against scheduled castes and scheduled tribes during a TV programme.

The police had refused to entertain the complaint saying that the entire issue was concerned to Delhi and was not under the jurisdiction of Ghaziabad Police.
