Haridwar: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s close aide Balakrishna, who is facing CBI probe into the forged passport case, welcomed the investigation agency’s move to send judicial request to Nepal.

Balakrishna on Saturday told Dainik Jagran, “The CBI move will reveal the truth of the baseless allegations levelled on me.”

Commenting on the Nainital High Court decision on Friday over CBI probe into passport issue, Balakrishna added, “Swami Ramdev and I have great respect for the Indian judicial system.”

He further added, “The FIR has been lodged against me with malicious intentions. The judicial request sent to Nepal will certainly put a check on false propaganda orchestrated against me.”
