Indian security forces have raided an anti-corruption rally led by a controversial yoga guru Swami Baba Ramdev in the capital city of New Delhi.
Police used tear gas to disperse his followers, injuring some 30 people.
Ramdev along with a large number of his supporters went on an indefinite hunger strike in an attempt to end rampant corruption in the country.
The guru has accused politicians of gaining large sums from the "people's hard-earned" money. India's most famous yoga trainer has also called for the death penalty for corrupt government officials.
Ramdev claims he has no political affiliations, but his protest was backed by activists from India's main opposition Hindu-nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
The developments come as a series of corruption scandals have hit the government of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in recent months.
Congress-led Indian government has promised to increase the penalty and speed up trials for those accused of corruption.
