Dehra Dun, Jul 27: Haridwar Police today pasted a CBI notice outside the residence of Baba Ramdev's close aide Balkrishna, asking him to appear before the agency tomorrow for allegedly using forged documents to acquire passport, even as efforts were on to trace his whereabouts.
The police has pasted the CBI notice outside Divya Yog mandir ashram residence of Balkrishna in which he has been summoned to appear on July 28 for questioning in the investigating agency's office here, said Haridwar SSP Kewal Khurana.
Meanwhile, efforts are on to trace Balkrishna, who had gone missing on Monday, a day after the investigating agency registered a case against him for allegedly furnishing fake documents for procuring a passport.
Khurana said the search for him would be intensified once the ‘Kanwar' mela is over in the next few days.
A missing person report was lodged in Kankhal Police Station of Haridwar on Monday night by Balkrishna's gunner Jayendra singh Aswal after he failed to locate him.
In his report, Aswal said he reached Balkrishna's residence to accompany him to his Patanjali yogpeeth office on Monday morning but he asked him to go to the office alone saying that he would leave later.
However, Aswal said Balkrishna did not come. After returning to the ashram, Aswal inquired about him but his whereabouts could not be traced following which he filed the report with the police.
Ashram officials told police that Balkrishna had gone for some “urgent work” and he would soon return.
The CBI has registered a case against him on Sunday under section 420 (cheating) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) for procuring the fake degree and violation of section 12 of Passport Act (knowingly furnishing false documents for getting passport). PTI
