A man later identified as Kamran Siddiqui threw ink at Baba Ramdev while the latter was addressing a press conference in Constitution Club, New Delhi on black money. Reportedly this man sought Ramdev’s opinion on Batala house encounter and when baba opined that the encounter was not fake, enraged he threw black ink at him leaving a mark on his left eye.
Attacker Kamran runs an NGO in the capital and is a petitioner in the Batala House encounter case. The supporters of the Yoga guru on the spot bashed him up before police took him into custody.
Ramdev was firm to bounce back after the attack and termed the black ink as a reward for seeking information on black money. All the political parties have termed the incident as unfortunate and have also pleaded innocence by clearing that the attacker is not affiliated to them.
