Ramdev being taken to Haridwar: Pillai

New Delhi: Home Secretary GK Pillai on Sunday said yoga guru Baba Ramdev was being taken to his ashram in Haridwar after police in a midnight action quelled his mass hunger strike and dispersed thousands of his followers.

"He is being taken to his ashram in Haridwar. He will be there by lunch time," Pillai said.

He dismissed the claim by Ramdev's supporters that the yoga guru was arrested.

He was detained for a while and later escorted out of Delhi, Pillai said.
