New Delhi, Jan 19: The ink attack case on Arvind Kejriwal is getting murkier by the day. At a time when reports are suggesting that the whole event was pre-planned, a new revelation has come to fore.
The Aam Aadmi Party said that there is a 'deep-rooted conspiracy' behind the incident and it took place because Delhi Police did not provided adequate security to the Chief Minister, but Delhi Police has denied the allegation.
According to a TOI report, "A source said that the cop had been asked to guard the CM's immediate periphery on the stage and had been asked to remain at guard in close proximity of the public address system to be used by Kejriwal. However, the cop said "Kejriwal's personal assistant (PA)" allegedly asked him to get off the dais and instructed the people there to not allow anyone "in uniform" on the stage. After this, the cop joined a dozen other cops standing at guard below the stage.
Not just that, several cops from the CM's security have complained to seniors and even sent entries through wireless sets saying that the CM had, on a number of occasions, stopped them from accompanying him. These logs say Kejriwal left home and office to undisclosed places after reprimanding his security detail to stay away."
A woman, later identified as Bhavna Arora, alleging a "CNG scam" in the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government threw ink at Kejriwal on Sunday at the public gathering at the Chhatrasal Stadium. The function was held to mark the "success" of the odd-even traffic restriction scheme. But she missed the target.
Arora was arrested on charges of obstructing public servant in discharge of public function, assault on public servant and intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Police is examining a CD that was being waved by Bhavna Arora, the woman who threw ink at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in which she claimed there was material that "indicts" the city government.
