New Delhi: A woman attacked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal while he was addressing a gathering at Chhatrasal stadium in New Delhi on Sunday, to celebrate the success of odd-even formula.

The woman threw ink at CM Kejriwal alleging that she made several attempts to meet the Delhi Chief Minister and state Transport Minister Gopal Rai in connection with a multi-crore CNG scam. However, she was turned down every time and thus,carried out the attack.

Here are things we know about the woman ink-attacker.

The woman is 26-year-old and has been identified as Bhavna Arora. She is said to be unmarried and stays with her family at Rama Vihar in Rohini. She has claimed to be in-charge of Punjab unit of Aam Aadmi Party Sena.

Aam Aadmi Party Sena is a splinter group of Aam Aadmi Party which was formed after AAP members grew dissatisfied with the ruling tactics of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Last time, Bhavna Arora was in news after she publicly blamed Arvind Kejriwal for the death of farmer Gajender Singh Kalyanwat at an AAP rally. In April last year, another AAPS member threw ink on AAP controversial leader Somnath Bharti over Gajender Singh's death.

Bhavna Arora has claimed that Kejriwal-led Delhi government is involved in multi-crore CNG scam in New Delhi. She has accused the AAP government of giving CNG certificates during odd-even scheme on two-wheelers numbers in exchange of money. According to Arora, she has a CD containing the sting which she will produce before the court today.Tin

In the past too, Aam Aadmi Party Sena (AAPS) has opposed Kejriwal government on several occasions. Arora was the chief of Aam Aadmi Party Sena Delhi Mahila Morcha when the party staged a protest outside Kejriwal's residence over failed administration in April last year.
