Supreme Court sends notice to Baba Ramdev after book publisher challenges High Court’s order


The Supreme Court on Friday served a notice to Patanjali founder Ramdev in a row concerning a book, Godman To Tycoon, published on his life. The bench comprising Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta served the notice after the publisher, Juggernaut Books, approached the apex court challenging the high court’s September judgement delivered on 29 August.

The Delhi High Court in its order had banned the publication of the book after Ramdev complained that its content was defamatory and potentially harmed his business opportunities.

While delivering its judgement, the Delhi High Court has said that book could not be published, distributed or sold until the publisher removed references to the disappearance of Swami Shankar Dev and the murder of the Swami Yogananda, stating that there was no evidence to support Ramdev’s connection to the two matters.

The top court has now deferred the matter till the first week of February.
