Bhavna Arora, a 27-year-old member of the ‘Aam Aadmi Sena’, threw ink at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday during a ceremony held at Chhatrasal Stadium, to celebrate the government’s ‘odd even success’.
Kejriwal was addressing Delhi citizens from the dais when Bhavna emerged from the crowd shouting slogans against him, and threw ink towards the podium.
According to reports, she also threw a CD and some papers at the Delhi CM, demanding that he probe what she termed as a ‘CNG scam’. The woman claimed that she had proof of AAP and Kejriwal’s involvement in the scam and she had tried to meet them in person, but was not allowed to.

Immediately after the incident took place, AAP members accused Delhi Police and the BJP of conspiring against the party. This led to counter-accusations among members of both the parties.
However, if we look at past incidents, it becomes apparent that this is not the first time the Aam Aadmi Sena has protested against AAP and Kejriwal. The Aam Aadmi Sena is headed by Prabhat Kumar.
Arora, who now claims to be in-charge of the Punjab unit of AAS, launched a protest against Kejriwal in April 2015 in New Delhi after a farmer named Gajendra Singh committed suicide during one of Kejriwal’s rallies.
She was interviewed by a local news channel while she continued smearing ink on posters of the Delhi Chief Minister. Bhavna claimed to be the head of the AAS Mahila Morcha (Delhi) at that time and accused AAP members of instigating Gajendra Singh.
The AAS Mahila Morcha also launched a protest outside Kejriwal’s residence in April 2015 demanding deployment of marshals in DTC buses and to fulfill their promise of working on women’s security in the state.
Formed by disgruntled volunteers?
The AAS was reportedly formed by disgruntled volunteers who alleged that there were many discrepancies in the internal working of the Aam Aadmi Party.
The AAS members protested and sat on a dharna at Jantar Mantar against the AAP ahead of Lok Sabha elections in 2014.
“I was an active member of AAP. Kejriwal has been lying since the beginning and he has betrayed the volunteers,” a man named Nishant who was part of the protesters told India TV.
Again in April 2014, the AAS members burnt an effigy of Arvind Kejriwal and urged the people of Delhi to press NOTA button while voting for Lok Sabha members.
Ink attack on Somnath Bharti
In April 2015, AAP lawmaker Somnath Bharti faced an ink attack by AAS volunteers. They also protested against Chief Minister Kejriwal outside IIT Delhi campus, where deputy CM Manish Sisodia and Bharti were scheduled to arrive for an event.
The party’s Twitter handle (@aamaadmisena) has 113 followers and is inactive since July 2015.
