Keith Vaz expresses "concern" over Baba Ramdev's "unexplained" detention at Heathrow

Indian spiritual leader Baba Ramdev has been granted permission to continue his visit to the United Kingdom a day after being detained by immigration authorities at Heathrow.

Swami Ramdev had arrived in London on Friday to participate in a series of events marking the 150th Birth Anniversary of 19th Century Indian yoga guru Swami Vivekananda.

He was interrogated for more than eight hours before being given a 24-hour visa and asked to return to Heathrow Terminal Five for further questioning. 

On Saturday scores of supporters gathered at the airport as the 47-year-old swami arrived at the airport with Keith Vaz, MP for Leicester East, for a meeting with the UK's Chief Immigration Officer.

Emerging from the meeting Mr Vaz expressed his disappointment that Baba Ramdev had been held by immigration. 

"It is still a matter of concern to his many supporters and thousands of people who couldn't be here today that he should have been treated in the way he was treated when he arrived at Heathrow", Mr Vaz said, adding, "No Indian citizen with a valid visa entering the UK for lawful purposes should be held in this way.  This is a very serious situation that occurred."
Baba Ramdev's supporters have claimed that his detention at Heathrow is part of a wider "conspiracy" by the Indian government because of the swami's outspoken views about corruption back home.

A Home Office spokeswoman told the UKAsian: "We would not comment on individual cases."
