Nainital: In a dramatic turn of events, the grandfather of Nitin Tyagi, who had accused Ramdev’s brother
Ram Bharat of abducting and torturing his grandson, today told Uttarakhand High Court that he had lodged the complaint under police pressure, after which the HC stayed Bharat’s arrest.
Justice V K Bisht passed the order as the complainant
appeared in the court and filed an affidavit, saying he was pressurised by the police to lodge an FIR against the Yoga guru’s brother, government counsel A S Gill said.
Nitin also filed an affidavit through his lawyer stating
that he was not abducted by anyone.
The court, however, directed Bharat to cooperate with the
police in its ongoing investigations into the case. Bharat was accused of abducting and torturing Nitin, a former employee of Patanjali Yogpeeth, which is owned by the Yoga guru.
