New Delhi: Delhi government has sought a detailed report on the ink attack on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal from Police Commissioner B S Bassi and asked him if the force has plans to prevent such incident in future.
Principal Secretary (Home) S N Sahai has written to Bassi on the ink incident against Kejriwal on January 17 while he was addressing a public rally to thank Delhiites for making odd-even scheme a "success" in North Delhi here.
"Sahai has written to the police commissioner seeking a report on the ink attack on the Chief Minister during a public rally here on Sunday. He has also sought to know if the Delhi Police has plan to prevent repetition of such incident in the future," a senior official said today.
26-year-old Bhavna Arora, who claimed to be the in-charge of the Punjab unit of Aam Aadmi Sena, threw ink at Kejriwal at a public rally held to celebrate the "success" of the odd-even scheme.
The incident had triggered angry reactions from the AAP government, which alleged a BJP conspiracy behind the attack and assailed the police for the major security lapse.
Earlier in the day, a Delhi court sent Arora to 14-day judicial custody.
Terming the offence as "grievous" and "serious", the court dismissed the bail application moved by accused Bhavna Arora and remanded her to judicial custody.
Arora has claimed she had "proof in the form of a CD" on the CNG scam.
A resident of Rama Vihar in outer Delhi's Rohini sub- city, she was booked for alleged offences under sections 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions) and 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty) of the IPC.
