Dehradun: A PIL has been filed against Yog Guru Ramdev in the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) here on Monday, for instigating people through his statement.

Baba Ramdev in a statement on November 20, 2010 had said that one minister from the state government had asked for a bribe of Rs 2 crore. He, however, had refused to disclose the name of the minister.

Sanjay Kumar, Kamojia of Sayed Mohalla, filed a petition against the Ramkishan Yadav alias Baba Ramdev, son of Ram Nivas Yadav of Patanjali Yogpeeth, Haridwar.

The petition stated that Baba’s denial to disclose the minister’s name has hurt people’s sentiment. The court will hear the case on May 4.
