New Delhi, June 5: In an effort to pre-empt any protest by supporters of Baba Ramdev, Delhi Police on Sunday, June 5 imposed prohibitory orders in New Delhi district where such agitations were apprehended.

"We have imposed section 144 of CRPC in New Delhi district," a senior police official said.

The decision to impose prohibitory orders came in the backdrop of some followers of Ramdev camping at Jantar Mantar after they were ousted from the Ramlila Maidan where their congregation was disrupted by a mid-night police action.

The official said police anticipated protest at India Gate, Boat Club or Jantar Mantar, places which fall in New Delhi district.

With talks breaking down, police swooped down on Baba Ramdev a little past midnight and detained him after firing tear gas shells and resorting to lathicharge on his supporters.

The dramatic police action came after government and the 46-year-old Yoga Guru had accused each other on Saturday, June 4 of betrayal on mutual assurances.
