"Police broke up a mass fast against graft led by India's most famous yoga guru Sunday, risking more political headaches for the scandal-tainted government. A senior ruling party figure said the saffron-robed swami Ramdev had used the anti-corruption event to incite people. ... Ramdev accused the police of brutality when they broke up the hunger strike which he and thousands of supporters started in New Delhi Saturday in a marquee the size of four football pitches."
