Dehra Dun/New Delhi, Jun 5 : Yoga guru Swami Ramdev was flown here today from Delhi by a special plane after police swooped down on his hunger strike at the Ramlila Maidan in a mid-night operation.
Ramdev, who was initially taken to an undisclosed destination from the protest site, was put into an aircraft by Delhi Police from the Palam Airport this morning, officials said.
On his arrival at the Jolly Grant Airport near Dehra Dun, Ramdev, who was alone, was received by Uttarakhand government officials, they said.
“He was alone when he landed. He was received by officials at the airport. He will now proceed to Haridwar where he has an ashram,” Dehra Dun Senior Superintendent of Police G S Martolia said.
While leaving the airport for his ashram, he refused to speak to mediapersons, saying that he will hold a press conference later. PTI
