After his remarks on Indian Army’s surgical strike carried out across LoC in response to Uri attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal became the victim of an ink attack. An ABVP worker threw black ink on him in Bikaner after Kejriwal asked for proof of the surgical strike carried out by the Indian Army on terror launch pads in PoK as reports in Pakistan media claimed that no such operation was conducted by the Indian Army on Pakistan soil.

Reports suggest that the ;local police has arrested some people in relation to the case. Arvind Kejriwal reacted to the ink attack and said: “God bless those who threw ink at me, I wish them well.” Kejriwal was in Bikaner, Rajasthan, to attend a condolence meeting at the home of a local leader of his Aam Aadmi Party. When he was leaving the home of the local leader around 10 pm, reports say a man later identified as Dinesh Ojha accusing the Delhi CM of being an anti-national, threw ink on his face.

“Pakistan is spreading the propaganda across the world and international media is running this that surgical strikes did not take place. I had only appealed to the PM that a befitting reply should be given to Pakistan,” Kejriwal stated earlier today after his appeal to PM Modi to release evidence of the surgical strike stating he never denied that it did not take place.

Earlier today, Delhi minister Satyendar Jain was targeted in a slipper attack by a woman over Arvind Kejriwal’s remarks on surgical strike by Indian army. The woman identified as Bhavana Arora had earlier staged an ink attack on Kejriwal in January. She is said to have hurled a slipper at the the Delhi Health minister’s car outside the Income Tax office at around 3.15 PM.

Luckily, the slipper did not hit him as the windows were closed but hit the vehicle in which the Health Minister was travelling along with AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Ashutosh.
