An FIR was registered against yoga guru Baba Ramdev in Mumbai on Wednesday for his controversial statement on Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.

Ramdev’s statement that Gandhi goes to Dalit homes for “picnics and honeymoon” had kicked up a controversy recently.

“An FIR has been registered against Ramdev under the relevant sections of (SC/ST Prevention of) Atrocities Act over his remarks,” Narendra Singh, senior inspector at Azad Maidan police station, told PTI.
