Dehradun, August 13
A CBI court here today extended the judicial remand of Balkrishan, a close aide of yoga guru Ramdev, by another 14 days in a case of forgery and violation of the Indian Passport Act.
CBI special magistrate Preeto Sharma also extended the judicial remand of Naresh Chandra Dwivedi, a co-accused in the case, by 14 days and fixed August 27 as the next date of hearing, said a CBI counsel. The two were sent back to the Suddhowala jail.
After coming out of the court premises, Balkrishan responded to questions of mediapersons regarding Ramdev’s arrest today. He said, “The tainted Central government will now harass saints. This will not continue for long and will end shortly. The revolution started by Ramdev will expose the UPA government before the public.”
The CBI had registered a case of cheating and criminal conspiracy against Balkrishan on July 23 last year for allegedly procuring a fake degree and violating Section 12 of the Indian Passport Act by furnishing fake documents to get the passport.
