Reiterating his stand on the forcible eviction of yoga guru Baba Ramdev from the Ramlila Ground here last month, Delhi Police chief BK Gupta on Saturday said his team was not at fault.

"The police actions have been recorded by the cameras of many news channels and they prove that the police cannot be blamed," Gupta told reporters at Delhi Police's half yearly press briefing here.

"I asked some channels to provide me with the unedited footage of that incident and you should also have a look at it," he told the media persons.

Delhi Police forcibly dispersed yoga guru Baba Ramdev and thousands of his supporters using batons and tear gas from the Ramlila Ground on the night of June 4-5. The people had gathered there to protest corruption and black money.

Delhi Police earlier refuted charges of using batons during the crackdown on Baba Ramdev, and said they were forced to retaliate after the yoga guru's supporters threw stones and flowerpots at them.
