‘Action at Ramlila ground against fundamental right’

via PTI published on June 4, 2011

Bangalore, Jun 5 (PTI) Justice Santosh Hegde, Lokpal bill drafting committee member, today termed the police action against Baba Ramdev and his supporters here as violation of “fundamental rights of citizens” and said it “brought back memories” of the Emergency.

“Everyone who was peacefully sleeping there was beaten up and thrown out..Quite an amount of brutality could be seen there. I am very very sad and it brings back the memories of June 25-26, 1975,” the Karnataka Lokayukta said.

“This is violation of the fundamental rights of citizens and also a violation of the human rights of the people who were present there. It is the fundamental right of the citizens to gather peacefully to demonstrate and till yesterday nothing untoward had happened which gave room for any suspicion that there may be a law and order problem,” Justice Hegde, a former judge of the Supreme Court, said.
