Haridwar, Jun 30: The CBI has quizzed Balkrishna, a close aide of yoga guru Ramdev, in connection with alleged furnishing of wrong information for getting passport even as police said that two birth certificates with varied information were issued to him by district authorities.


A CBI team yesterday reached Haridwar and questioned Balkrishna in this regard, police sources said. The team also went to Haridwar Municipal Council and searched records of the office of birth-death registrar.

A Local Intelligence Unit Inspector Sanjay Bishnoi said that preliminary investigations conducted by the police revealed that Balkrishna has only one passport and it was renewed on February 7, 2007.

He, however, said there are doubts about his nationality as discrepancy has been found in two birth certificates issued by Haridwar Municipal Council to him. While in one of the certificates, the nationality of Balakrishna's parents is mentioned as Indian, in the other it is Nepalese.

Haridwar Municipal Council officials are tightlipped on the issue.

Bishnoi said Haridwar Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Kewal Khurana has handed over all records related to the case to the CBI team. PTI
