4 hour midnight drama at Ramlila maidan
It started at ten minutes past 1 am. Within a few short minutes the Ramlila Grounds had turned into a warzone. Bizarre scenes unfolded as Baba Ramdev literally jumped into the crowds and his supporters formed a ring around him. In over a 4 hour long drama of tear gas shells and 'mild' lathicharge as the police describes it, thousands of supporters were cleared out. Baba Ramdev was literally whisked away in the middle of the night and airlifted to Dehradun. This is the blow by blow account of the high drama at Ramlila Grounds.
