Certainly doing profitable business is not a crime. But a saffron clad sanyasi, who is supposed to have renounced the world allegedly doing business and owning thousands of crores is suspect. What are the sources of income of this "business-man". Does he submit income-tax returns every year. Many people are rightly hauled up for having assets disproportionate to their known sources of income. What about this swami? He owns and travels in private jet/s. He owns an island somewhere in the world.
The congress first treated him as a VVIP with senior ministers waiting on him. Then there was disagreement. Disagreements often happen among thieves. The result was the sudden midnight crack-down, I suspect. Anyway the Lokpal bill is lost.
Notwithstanding all these, the gullible go after him.
