The Commonwealth Games controversy refuses to die down. On Sunday afternoon, Baba Ramdev and other prominent social activists marched to Parliament Street Police station with a 77-page complaint demanding investigations in the alleged corruption in organising the 19th Commonwealth Games. The activists later addressed a strong gathering of over 10,000 people.

The group claimed that their complaint had incorporated "all evidences". The complaint was also signed by activists Anna Hazare and Swami Agnivesh, Delhi Archbishop Vincent Concessao and scientist Devendra Sharma.

The activists demanded for a proper police investigation into the corruption in the Games, which was held in the capital from October 3 to 14.

The complaint stated that there should be proper investigations into the conduct of the Games as well as the projects undertaken by Delhi government, sports ministry and urban development ministry besides civic agencies.

The activists said they will send a copy of the complaint along with a memorandum to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and agencies like CVC and the CBI.
