New Delhi, July 25 (IANS) In an apparent relief to union Home Minister P. Chidambaram, the Supreme Court Monday declined to issue notice to him on a plea that he sanctioned the police crackdown on yoga guru Baba Ramdev and his supporters posty midnight June 4.
An apex court bench of Justice B.S. Chauhan and Justice Swanter Kumar, while declining to entertain the plea by Baba Ramdev, said that the court was not inclined to broaden the focus of the inquiry and wanted it to be limited to the post-midnight police action.
The court said that its concern was to know what were the circumstances that led to the police action and ensuring that such incidents of police lathicharge on innocent, sleeping citizens are not repeated.
