Black ink thrown at Baba Ramdev's face

A man threw black ink at yoga guru Baba Ramdev while he was addressing journalists here Saturday. His furious supporters assaulted the man till he bled from his mouth. "What have I done to deserve this?" said a nonplussed Ramdev, who was speaking on black money 

New Delhi: Angry over Baba Ramdev's remark that the 2008 Batla House shootout was not fake, a man threw black ink on the face of the yoga guru during his press conference here Saturday, police said.

The attacker, Kamran Siddiqui, was detained by the police after he was caught and roughed up by Ramdev's supporters within the club premises.

"When Baba said that Batla House encounter was not fake, Kamran threw ink on him. He lives in south Delhi's Okhla area and supposedly runs a non-government organisation Real Cause," said a senior Delhi Police official.

In the Sep 19, 2008, Batla House shootout in Delhi, two alleged Indian Mujahideen members and one police officer were killed in public view. Certain local groups and some political parties, however, alleged it was a staged shootout.

Ramdev was holding a press conference on black money and corruption at the Constitution Club here Saturday.

Wiping the ink off his face, a nonplussed Ramdev remarked later, "What have I done to deserve this?"

Ramdev said he had asked for the black money to be returned to the country and instead got black ink.

"Those who fight for truth have to pay the price. We are fighting to get black money back to the country and instead I got black ink...What did I do to deserve this?" Ramdev said to reporters.

"This incident won't affect me. We will continue to fight against the odds, come what may," he added.
