Women supporters of Ramdev today organised a "yagna" at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi for speedy recovery of Raj Bala, who suffered injuries during police action against a protest led by the yoga guru and sought immediate intervention of the President seeking justice for the victims.

The yagna was organised by Ramdev's "Delhi Mahila Patanjali Yoga Samiti" for the speedy recovery of 51-year-old Raj Bala and to protest against the alleged police "brutality" against Ramdev and his supporters on June 4 at Ram Lila Maidan here.

"We don't have any faith in the inquiry being conducted by the Delhi Police. Therefore, we demand a probe by an independent investigation agency and immediate intervention of the President in the matter," said Suman Acharaya, women central-in charge of Patanjali Yoga Samiti and Bharat Swabhiman Trust.

She said the trust will submit a memorandum to the President seeking her immediate intervention in the matter.

Raj Bala's children who were part of the protest also sought intervention of the President, an independent probe and assistance for their mother who continues to be "very critical" in G B Pant Hospital.

"What was the fault of my mother? She was there to protest against the cancer of corruption that has engulfed our country and this was her constitutional right.... We want probe by an independent agency, if there is any, because we don't trust the Delhi Police anymore," said Rakesh, Raj Bala's daughter.
