The supporters of Baba Ramdev who gathered at Ramlila Maidan had stacked airguns, baseball bats and bricks behind the dais, police said on Tuesday.
Ramdev was to hold a 20-day yoga camp at Ramlila Maidan,
Central Delhi, but was evicted after a day’s event on Sunday.
The FIR lodged by police said after the yoga camp took the shape of a rally, they decided to cancel the permission.
The FIR said: “After provocative speeches by Sadhvi Rithambhara, Maulana Kalbe Jabbar and Akali Dal’s Onkar Singh Randhawa that they decided to cancel the permission as they were asking more people to join the agitation and not leave the premises at any cost.”
It also said after Ramdev was given a notice that the permission for the camp has been cancelled, he continued to give provocative speeches and tried to dodge the police by asking his supporters to form a cordon around him.
