Dehradun: A special CBI court in Dehradun on Friday deferred till October 22 the hearing in the case of forgery and violation of the Indian Passport Act against yoga guru Ramdev's aide Balkrishna.

Balkrishna, who is out on bail in the case, made an appearance in the designated court in connection with the hearing slated for Friday, but it could not take place due to the nationwide bandh, CBI Counsel Rajmohan Chand said.
