Haridwar: The Patanjali Yogpeeth on Saturday demolished a boundary wall constructed illegally on its land in Aruangabad.

Yog Guru Baba Ramdev has taken the step after discussing it with his aide Acharya Balkrishna and Yogesh Shastri.

The move was taken after the complaint was lodged that the Yogpeeth Trust Land Exchange has encroached 43 bigha (area of land) of the Gram Sabha following which SDM Harvir Singh had inquired into the matter.  
The Yogpeeth Trust Land Exchange had filed an application, but no decision could be taken against the application.

Yoggram manager Yogesh Shastri said, “After seeing the attitude of the district administration, the decision of demolishing the wall was taken. Now the disputed land has been abandoned by us.”
