NEW DELHI: Chaos prevailed at Constitution Club here on Saturday afternoon after a man threw black ink at Baba Ramdev during a press conference. The incident took place when the yoga guru, accompanied by Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy, was speaking on the issue of black money.

Ramdev’s supporters got enraged and physically assaulted the man. At the time of the incident, only Ramdev’s personal security was present at the spot, but the police soon arrived on the scene and took the attacker to Parliament street police station.

The police also whisked away the yoga guru from the spot as a security measure. The attacker was identified as Kamran Siddiqui, who runs an NGO in Delhi and is a petitioner in the Batla house encounter case.

He had reportedly gained entry into the hall carrying a walkie-talkie, apparently posing as a security personnel.

Ramdev had called the press conference to brief the media on his plans to campaign in the five poll-bound states for demanding black money stashed in banks abroad to be brought back to the country.
