Two youths affiliated with the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) threw ink at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday night as they were “angry at his comments on the Indian Army”, said police.

Sub-inspector Ajay Kumar, Kotegate police station, Bikaner, said, “We have detained Dinesh Ojha (24) and Vikram Singh (26) for throwing ink at Arvind Kejriwal. Both are affiliated with the ABVP and they said they were angry with him over his comments on the Indian Army.”

Party worker Prashant Kumar, who was at the spot, said, “The chief minister was coming out of the home of former party treasurer Krishna Kant Seveda. He had barely stepped out when three youths hurled ink at him, along with the bottles, which landed on him and those standing nearby. One person managed to flee while two were apprehended.”

Party’s Sikar Lok Sabha convenor Vinod Modi, who was also accompanying Kejriwal, said, “A lot of people were waiting for the chief minister and he was acknowledging them with folded hands at the threshold of the house. He was about to get in the car when the youths hurled ink at him. The volunteers and police immediately helped him into the vehicle and escorted him to the railway station.”

He added, “It is a shameless act. Someone’s mother had passed away and the family is in mourning. Is this how ABVP behaves with visitors to the house?”

            Dear Kejriwal Sir, I am a common man and I don't know how to do politics. Still I can understand that doubting on DGMO of India means doubt on country. He is not a politician and in spite of his declaration of Surgical Strike in POK why we are not convinced, why we need evidence and why we are provoked by stan's action. Sir, please, being an IIT'an (educated) it must be think that if we did not do anything then why stan is firing mortar in LOC without any reason. They have got the answer from Indian army and also seen the trial that what Indian army can do. My minimum seance is telling that releasing the video of secret mission would cause escalation between two countries. Hence, I request you to kindly leave this national issue on Army and keep patience and trust on the nation, because something you can not judge through politics. Something is beyond politics.

                  Aree yaar thoda dimaag laga ke bol. Kyon faltu mein aise logon ko sahid kehlwane ka mauka dete ho. He does not deserve to be called a martyr. Bullets are never the solution with such people. It is just a means to promote their drama. So stop suggesting such things.
