Patanjali case: Ramdev, his aide Balkrishna to be present in Supreme Court today

New Delhi/IBNS: The Supreme Court will on Tuesday hear a contempt case against Patanjali Ayurved- founded by yoga guru Ramdev and his aide Acharya Balkrishna- over the misleading advertisements by the company, media reports said.

Ramdev and Balkrishna will be in the Supreme Court during the hearing on Tuesday.

This comes almost a week after the top court ripped apart Patanjali and its founders rejecting their "unconditional apology" in connection with the misleading advertisements.

When senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, who appeared for Patanjali founders, told the court about the mistakes, the Supreme Court came out with a harsh rebuke.

"We are not blinded...We don't want to be generous in this case," the bench said as quoted by India Today.

"The apology is on paper. Their back is against the wall. We decline to accept this, we consider it a deliberate violation of undertaking. Be ready for something next to rejection of the affidavit," the court further said.

The court also lashed out at Patanjali co-founder and yoga guru Ramdev for exempting from court appearances citing travel plans.

The court noted Ramdev initially claimed he did not have the ticket and then filed a backdated ticket in the affidavit.

Calling the action "perjury", the court warned him, "You're taking the process very lightly."
