A rumor of Baba Ramdev dying in a road accident on the Mumbai-Pune highway went viral on social media on Tuesday. The hoax message with the image of a bearded man being carried on a stretcher and taken to an ambulance caused a stir all around.
However, it turned out that nothing unfortunate had happened to the Yog Guru and the news as well as images were fake.
Baba Ramdev tweeted about the yog shivir he was conducting the same day in Haridwar. He also informed people about his well being and asked them not to believe in any rumors.
Took yog shivir of thousands of yogis in Haridwar today. I am safe and healthy. Don’t believe on any rumours pic.twitter.com/6P2KlUXw8lAdvertisement

Reportedly, the image that accompanied the message is from an incident in the year 2011 when Baba Ramdev became unwell during an Anshan (hunger-strike).
There were some interesting tweets from the followers of Baba Ramdev, feeling glad about his wellness and praying for his good health. Read some of them here:
