Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has approached the Supreme Court against the multiple multiple FIRs registered against him in different states over his alleged remarks that Allopathy can't cure COVID.

The FIRs were registered in States of Bihar and Chhattisgarh based on complaints by Indian Medical Association. The Patna and Raipur chapters of IMA lodged complaints against Ramdev alleging that his comments are likely to cause prejudice to COVID control, as the misinformation spread by him in a position of influence can dissuade people from availing proper treatment against the pandemic.

In the writ petition filed under Article 32, Ramdev seeks clubbing and the consolidation of FIRs and their transfer to Delhi. As an interim relief, he also seeks a stay on the investigation in the FIRs.

The FIRs mention offences under Sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), 269 (negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and other provisions of Disaster Management Act, 2005.
