No grudge against man who threw ink, says Ramdev

New Delhi, Sep 7, 2013, (PTI) :

Yoga guru Ramdev today told a Delhi court that he bore no grudge against a man who had thrown ink on him during a press conference here last year with both now having decided against further pursuing the case.

Metropolitan Magistrate Prashant Sharma disposed of the assault case against Delhi resident Kamran Siddiqui, facing trial for throwing ink on Ramdev, and imposed a fine of Rs 2,000 on him.

During the proceedings, Ramdev appeared before the court and said he did not want to pursue the case as being a "saint", he had already pardoned Siddiqui.

Ramdev, who had deposed as a witness in the case before the court on January 22, had said he had pardoned Siddiqui and did not want him punished.

After Ramdev's statement as a witness, the court had asked the accused to apologise to the yoga guru, which Siddiqui had thereafter done.

Siddiqui was facing trial for offences under Sections 355 (assault or criminal force with intent to dishonour a person) and 153 (giving provocation with intent to cause riot) of the IPC for throwing black ink on Ramdev's face while he was addressing reporters on January 14 last year.
