Woman Who Threw Ink At Kejriwal Sent To One Day Police Custody


NEW DELHI -- The woman, who threw ink at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal during a public meeting at the Chhatrasal Stadium yesterday, was on Monday sent to one-day police custody.

"There are two grounds which need to be considered. It has to be found whether this is a conspiracy or an individual act. We have asked the court that she is a woman and there is no offence against her for which she should be on bail," complainant lawyer C.L. Gupta said.

The woman, who identified herself as Bhawna, the Punjab in-charge of Aam Aadmi Sena, was released last night on a personal bail bond.

The woman accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government of being involved in a CNG scam.

"The Odd-Even formula was positive, but behind that was a big CNG Scam, of which I have proof. That is why I wanted to meet the Chief Minister and Gopal Rai ji (Transport Minister), but they didn't agree to meet me," said the attacker.

She further stated that in the scam, CNG stickers were issued on bike numbers.

The woman also blamed the party volunteers of manhandling her after the attack and thanked the Delhi Police for bringing her into safety.

She was, however, seen being dragged out of the venue by the policemen.

The incident took place when Kejriwal was expressing his gratitude to the people of Delhi for making the Odd-Even formula a success.

The woman rushed close to the dais and threw ink at Kejriwal. She was immediately apprehended by the police. However, the Chief Minister told the cops to leave her.

"Leave her; she is talking about some scam. Please take that paper from her she is mentioning some CNG scam," he said.

The event was organised by the AAP Government to thank the people of Delhi for making the odd-even experiment, which ended on January 15, a success.
