Supreme Court relief for Chidambaram on Ramdev crackdown

In an apparent relief to union Home Minister P. Chidambaram, the Supreme Court on Monday declined to issue notice to him on a plea that he sanctioned the police crackdown on yoga guru Baba Ramdev and his supporters post midnight June 4.

An apex court bench of Justice B.S. Chauhan and Justice Swanter Kumar, while declining to entertain the plea by Baba Ramdev, said that the court was not inclined to broaden the focus of the inquiry and wanted it to be limited to the post-midnight police action.

The court said that its concern was to know what were the circumstances that led to the police action and ensuring that such incidents of police lathicharge on innocent, sleeping citizens are not repeated.

The court will August 5 view the two-hour footage of the police crackdown.

    The issue can be twisted in any way. Facts are better known to Hon’ble Court itself, who must have been given briefing through petition. It is however, observed in confidence and based on experience thatCourts/Judicial officers are not exception to such twisting of the facts. If the justice as felt by the petitioner is not done to ordinary citizen by the Court, who will perform the Constitutional Duty.
