Bhopal: The youth who had created a fake facebook account of Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi has turned out to be a follower of Baba Ramdev. The youth had decided to create the account in a form of retaliation after the Delhi police action at the Ramlila grounds and the mis-behaviour shown to the Yog Guru.

Ankit Kumar Saini, who was arrested from Ambala on Tuesday, will be brought to the state. Surendra Kumar Mishra, in-charge of special cell and IG of the state police said the youth was arrested from Narayangarh tehshil of Ambala.

In the presence of Ambala police, the boy in his interrogation has confessed to be the supporter of Baba Ramdev. He said that in order to teach the Central government a lesson he had created a fake facebook account of Rahul Gandhi.

Meanwhile, the district Congress spokesperson, Pankaj Chatuvedi, who first highlighted the issue, said the revelation in the case puts forth a large conspiracy was made to malign the image of Gandhi family.

Seeking a further investigation in the case, he said, “Ramdev is a business man and for his benefits he can go to any extent.”
