Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday was the victim of an ink attack in Bikaner, Rajasthan, ANI reported. Where he had gone to attend a condolence meeting at the home of a local leader of his Aam Aadmi Party. It is still unclear what the motive of the attack’s perpetrators was.
“God bless those who threw ink at me. I wish them well,” Kejriwal said after he was attacked.
The Delhi chief minister came under a lot of flak recently for his comments on the ‘Surgical Strikes’ carried out by the Indian Army on the terrorist launch pads in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. In a video address, Kejriwal saluted Prime Minister Narendra Modi but, at the same time, urged the Centre to expose Pakistan by releasing video footage of the covert strike.
“This incident happened late in the evening at a residential complex when Kejriwal was coming out after meeting his acquaintance. We have detained two persons in this regard,” a police official said.
Sources claim, the people detained are members of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). ABVP is a right-wing all India student organisation affiliated to the Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
