Dehra Dun, Jul 20: The CBI has arrested yoga guru Ramdev's aide Balkrishna.





Earlier, a non-bailable warrant was issued against him by a special CBI court here on Friday after he failed to appear before it in the alleged fake documents case.

The CBI, on July 10, had filed a chargesheet in a special court here against Balkrishna in a case relating to alleged submission of alleged fake and forged documents to obtain an Indian passport.

In its chargesheet, the CBI also accused the then principal of Sanskrit Mahavidayala, Khurja in Uttar Pradesh for allegedly helping Balkrishna obtain fake educational certificates.

The agency booked the duo under IPC sections related to criminal conspiracy, cheating and forgery, and imposed additional charge for the alleged violation of the Passport Act against Balkrishna.

"It was alleged in the complaint that the accused had wrongfully obtained an Indian passport. Inquiry established that the accused in connivance with some unknown persons has furnished false information and forged documents to the Passport office at Bareilly (UP) for getting an Indian passport issued," the CBI spokesperson said.

The CBI had registered a case of cheating and criminal conspiracy against Balkrishna on July 23 last year for allegedly procuring fake degree and violating Section 12 of Indian Passport Act by furnishing fake documents to get a passport.

The agency said its investigation had established that the accused, in connivance with a co-accused, had furnished false information and submitted fake and forged High School and graduation certificates to the passport authorities for obtaining the document.
