Jodhpur: A court here in Rajasthan Saturday ordered police to file a case against yoga guru Baba Ramdev for his alleged remarks against Dalits, a lawyer said.

A man named Vijay Rao recently filed a complaint in the court of a metropolitan magistrate against Ramdev.

"The court Saturday asked police to initiate an inquiry against Ramdev," said Vijay`s lawyer MA Rao.

In the complaint, Rao said he was deeply hurt by the derogatory remarks made by the yoga guru against Dalits.

The court asked police to register a case under sections of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and other relevant laws.

Ramdev had recently said Rahul Gandhi visits houses of Dalits for "honeymoon and picnic". He later apologised and said he was misinterpreted.

A case had already been registered against Ramdev in Jaipur.
