Baba Ramdev calls off hunger strike


Indian anti-corruption campaigner Baba Ramdev has called off his hunger strike, a day after police stopped him from marching to parliament in Delhi to stage a demonstration.

Baba Ramdev, who is one of the country's most famous yoga gurus, is campaigning for the recovery of bribe money allegedly held overseas. He is also demanding stronger anti-corruption laws.

Corruption is a raging issue in India with a recent survey saying that it costs the country billions of dollars and threatens to derail growth.
