news Ink attack Sunday, January 17, 2016 - 18:58

woman attempted to throw ink at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday when he was addressing a crowd of 5,000 people at Chhatrasal stadium in Delhi.

The event was held to thank Dlehi’s residents for following the odd-even rule.

Following the incident, AAP leaders accused Delhi police of taking inadequate measures to protect the CM.

Deputy CM Manish Sisodia told the media that it was BJP’s conspiracy.

Responding to the allegations, Delhi police said that constables and senior officers of four police stations were present at the venue.

The woman identified as Bhavna was immediately detained by police. 

She reportedly claimed to be a member of Aam Aadmi Sena’s Punjab unit, and accused Kejriwal of being involved in CNG scam.

Indian Express reported that although she came close to the podium where Kejriwal was delivering his speech, the ink fell short of him and only podium was stained.

 “I have proof of his involvement in CNG scam,” said the woman as she was taken away by police.

Kejriwal told the authorities to free the woman and accepted the papers thrown at him.

AAP’s Ankit Lal has refuted the woman’s claim of being an AAP member.

 In October last year two such ink attacks took place in the country, with former BJP politician Sudheendra Kulkarni faced a similar attack for associating himself with a book launch of Khurshid Kasuri, a former Pakistani diplomat in Mumbai.

Just few days after that a right wing group attacked Jammu and Kashmir Independent MLA Engineer Rashid was attacked for holding a beef party inside the Jammu and Kashmir assembly.
